Subject RE: How to replace tokens with file contents?
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2003 14:03:43 GMT
try this, it will replace the @JSPCSNIPPET@ token in web.xml with the jspc
generated mappings

<target name="make-web-xml" 
	     description="makes the application web.xml by updating the
@JSPCSNIPPET@ token with the appropriate value">
	<!-- load the jspc generated snippet into the webxml.snippet
property -->
	<loadfile property="webxml.snippet" srcFile="${jspmapfile}"

	<!-- copy web.xml to a distro directory, overwriting the jspc token
with the webxml.snippet property -->
   <copy todir="${}" overwrite="true">
     <fileset dir="./conf" >
       <include name="**/web.xml"/>
       <filter token="JSPCSNIPPET" value="${webxml.snippet}"/>
