Subject RE: property file
Date Thu, 17 Oct 2002 13:56:02 GMT

It seems to work alright based on my test case. As per Erik's suggestion, I reviewed the "prefix"
parameter of the property task:

"Prefix to apply to properties loaded using file or resource. A "." is appended to the prefix
if not specified."

I wasn't able to extrapolate from that description how that could be applied to what I'm up
to, unless the idea is that I could prefix one set of properties to be sure they didn't collide
with the other set? Since each file contains it's own unique set of properties and values,
I'm not sure I would need to go down that path...?
