Subject RE: How to get paths with forward slashes
Date Mon, 27 Jan 2003 11:48:33 GMT
Well, here are the specific examples I am having trouble with:

1) log4j's configuration file requires pathnames with either forward
slashes or double back-slashes. If I use Ant to create this file with a
path property, I get something like

        <param name="File" value="C:\MyProject\log\test.log"/>

Log4j gets completely confused by this.

2) The Axis Java2Wsdl task expects a URL in the form


I do not know how to give this URL to the Ant task even if I have a
property that contains a regular path.

Java programs will understand file: protocol URL's even if the slashes
a mix of forward and least that is my experience.  So,
wouldn't worry much about this.
