Subject RE: How to get a Environment Variable value from Ant build file?
Date Fri, 29 Mar 2002 20:11:12 GMT
Yes...

inside your build xml file use the following before you "property name"
sets:

  <property environment="env"/>

then access your Environment variables by:

	${env.<your environment variable name>}

example:
	
	${env.ANT_HOME}

Subject: How to get a Environment Variable value from Ant build file?


In my build file, I need to get the value of a user defined env. variable.  
(like the one set for Ant -- ANT_HOME)
It's not any of the Ant build-in properties or system properties from
java.lang.System.getProperties().

Any way to do this?


Thanks,

Bianca
