Subject RE: Directory names (looping thru property file )
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2003 05:19:34 GMT
I had written an explanation in the FAQ on jGuru:

http://www.jguru.com/faq/view.jsp?EID=1099123
"Evaluating properties based on other properties"

You need the code described there, so I recommend reading that.

I don´t know the "Ashkelon".
