Subject AW: ANT 1.5.1: Two property files: Property values not resolved
Date Tue, 11 Feb 2003 14:42:53 GMT
Ok, I obviously got something wrong. Not even this works:

<project basedir="." default="show" name="">

    <target name="init">
      <property name="base" value="basepath"/>
      <property name="one" value="${base}/${two}/${three}"/>
      <property name="two" value="twovalue"/>
      <property name="three" value="threevalue"/>
    </target>
    
    <target name="show" depends="init">
      <echo message="base    : ${base}"/>
      <echo message="one     : ${one}"/>
    </target>

</project>



The output is:

Build sequence for target `show' is [init, show]
Complete build sequence is [init, show]
init:
Property ${two} has not been set
Property ${three} has not been set
show:
base    : basepath
one     : basepath/${two}/${three}
BUILD SUCCESSFUL


Moving the line like this solves the problem:

<project basedir="." default="show" name="">

    <target name="init">
      <property name="base" value="basepath"/>
      <property name="two" value="twovalue"/>
      <property name="three" value="threevalue"/>

      <property name="one" value="${base}/${two}/${three}"/>

    </target>
    
    <target name="show" depends="init">
      <echo message="base    : ${base}"/>
      <echo message="one     : ${one}"/>
    </target>

</project>


Output:

Complete build sequence is [init, show]
init:
show:
base    : basepath
one     : basepath/twovalue/threevalue
BUILD SUCCESSFUL



Nevertheless I have got the previously mentioned files, I have to deal with :-(. Are there
any possibilities to prevent ANT from reading all property entries when it reads the first
file? The entry "P.refid" would be enough, then it could read the "*.C.properties" file and
then the abc.P.properties file again. 

Greetings
Chris
