Subject RE: Setting Enviroment alias in properties file - CLARIFICATION
Date Thu, 30 May 2002 22:32:50 GMT
Me, I do the reverse and always puts it first, to be able to use
${env.SOMETHING} in the properties files. I consider the env. properties
immutable, and if I want override-ability, I don't use ${env.XXX} directly,
but copy it to another variable for later use (variable which can be
overridden in the properties files). --DD

I do use <property env> in most of my build files, but I always read it in
after reading the user, project and masterbuild property files, in that
order. This gives me 3 places to override an env variable, if I so choose.
