Subject RE: Search a substring
Date Mon, 29 Jul 2002 15:13:36 GMT
Ant doesn't support manipulating property values directly. You have to go
with a <script> (the easiest), or convoluted use of existing tasks to go to
file, do conversion there (Ant supports this very well), then read back
converted values in.

My advice would be to decompose you property into several, which you can
later compose to get you current property. So change:

DB_CONNECT_INFO=jdbc:oracle:thin:@host:1521:instance

Into

DB_HOST = host
DB_PORT = 1521
DB_PATH = instance
DB_CONNECT_INFO=jdbc:oracle:thin:@${DB_HOST}:${DS_PORT}:${DB_PATH}

No need for parsing if you can do that... --DD

Subject: AW: Search a substring

No, I need only to get/read the string at this specific position,
because "instance" could also be "production", "test", or anything else.
I need only this substring for other proberty settings.
