Have you considered using the SCRIPT task?  This sounds like a task that
requires a bit of program logic.
You could write Javascript that set a variable to be either
"NIGHTLY-YYYY-MM-DD" or "VERSION-NO" and then do the replace using that
variable that.
In some seperate files you could increment the version number.

Subject: same old question(slightly long)

I have a manifest file 
which has in it the line say, 


I use this manifest file when I build my jar files. 

Now if its a nightly build , I need the file to say: 


But if its a release, I need it to say Package-Version:2.2 (next release 2.1
+ 1) 

I could accomplish this by Propertyfile but it replaces the ":" with "=" 

2nd option: replace. But this would mean i search for  2.1 nd replace with
"nightly" (hardcoded) 
and then if there was to be a release ,  i now search for and replace  2.2
with "nightly" 
also i have lots of projects being built with diff versions.  So many ant
files  will have to be maintained. 
SO i thought of having something like have Package-Version:which in all
manifest files  and then ant replaces which to Nightly

But this doesnt work since I lose my version information if i write
Package-Version:which in all manifest files. 

I dont want to do a echo cause i will have a lot of code hardcoded in ANT

Any way out ??? 

p.s. was I clear?
