Oh My god, that's too much work for this simple task.

But thanks for ur reply David

Can we do something like in the same echo message, first write cvsRoot: then
some character for to enter a new line and then write password:

The problem is that it overwrites the file each time. What you should do is
write the properties to separate files, then append them together using the
concat task.

Subject: <echo> task


I am using the following target to write properties to a file

<target name="setProp" unless="newProp">
<echo message="We are setting cvsRoot property in CVS.properties files"/>
<echo message="cvsRoot:" file="${prop.file}"/>
<echo message="password:" file="${prop.file}"/>
</target>


Now when this target executes it seems to be overwriting the first
message="cvsRoot" as all I get in the properties file is "password:"

I need to have:
cvsRoot:
password:

How could this be done, Or am I dong something wrong,

Please advice

Vikas

ant 1.5.3 cannot "spawn" processes like tomcat.
have a look at this posting from Bill Burton :
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=ant-user&m=104322316306620&w=2
Subject:  [SUBMIT] Support for detached <exec> on Unix and Windows

in ant1.6alpha, the exec task has a spawn attribute.

it works like that

<exec executable="cmd.exe" spawn="true">
     <arg value="/C"/>
     <arg value="start-tomcat.bat"/>
      <arg value=">NUL"/>
</exec>
not the >NUL this is to redired the stdout of the start-tomcat.bat to the
nirvana, otherwise the spawned process crashes.
Or you can write your own wrapper to redirect the output to a log file.

Cheers,

Antoine
