Just do:

<loadfile property="xyz" ... />
<property name="xyz" value="" />

The latter will be ignore if xyz was already set by loadfile. --DD

Subject: loadfile fails on empty file

I use loadfile to fetch a list of files filtered by replaceregexp. When the
list (and file) is empty, the loadfile task will silently *not* set the
output property causing an error in the next task. Is there a way of setting
it the the empty string, or do I have to test if the property is set or not?
