Subject RE: Batch filtering using properties?
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2002 07:01:06 GMT
Hi Martin,

I simply want to have a properties file containing properties and
values. For ex:

my.properties1 = value1
my.properties2 = value2

Then I would like my build.xml to read that and create as many filters
as there are properties in the file (with same name and same value). BUT
the values the properties values could be overwritten by the user let's
say by using -Dmy.properties1=newvalue1 on the command line.

Nothing fancy, no GUI, etc.

Hello Vincent

Could you provide the build.xml you are using for
Assuming you are using build.xml why not have a Java Dialog modify the
myproperty of build.xml beforehand??
