Hi Marcus,

There are a couple of ways of doing this. Using p4counter to maintain a
build counter on your p4 server is probably the simplest (see the p4counter

Others have used a version.txt file and Ant's propertyfile stuff to check
this file out, increment a value stored in the file and then write it back
and check in. This approach is good for any SCM.

Another way is to use the <script> task to script up whatever you need for
setting your label name.

Once you have the property you should just be able to create a new label
with p4label.
