Technically: it sets the property xxx to 
(whatever properties.path points to).toString().

In case of references to path constructs this will set the property to
a string representation of the <path> suitable as a path like
environment variable on the OS you are using (i.e. all
files/directories in the path separated by colon and using forward
slashes on Unix - semicolon backslashes on Windows).
