If you prefix the value with ${basedir}/ in the properties file, you get
almost the same effect. the 'location' attribute recognizes absolute path
from relative ones, but for value you specify in properties files, you know
what is absolute or relative, and simply prefix the relative ones with
${basedir}/. --DD

Subject: property value vs. property location

I've been reading that it's best to use the location attribute rather
than the value attribute. 

Is it possible to accomplish this when using a properties file? It looks
like all properties loaded from a properties file are assigned to the
value attribute.
