Subject Re: Passing changing values from script to ant
Date Wed, 16 Apr 2003 10:42:03 GMT
I do not know beanshell, but generally there are different ways to set
If beanshell can write files, then write a property file in your beanshell
and load it in your ant build file with
<property file=""/>
If you start ant by issuing a shell command, you can also do
"ant -Dpropertyname=value"; properties defined on the command line override
these defined in the build.xml
Last solution, if you are starting your ant build via the ant Java API, you
can override properties programmatically.
Hope this helps.
