Subject Re: nested properties anyone?

I disagree with the statement that you would not use a
similar approach in Java.  We have things called maps
which would give us the ability to tie one String (or
any Object) to another, to another, to another, and so
on.  Plus something in me rebels against the idea of
maintaing files other than Ant build files to complete
a build.
