Subject How to a act based on property value, _not_ if set [was: ANT copy on condition]
Date Tue, 09 Dec 2003 18:40:05 GMT
I've need to take an action based on the value of a property
(knowing that it's set does me no good). Jan's response to an
earlier question looks like a viable option, but is there an
easier way? For example if I have -

<input validargs="new,existing" addproperty="label_type" 
message="Is this ear file based on a new or existing label?"/>

I'd like to do, inside my ant script, as follows -

if(label_type == "new"){
 .....
 }
else{
 .....
 }

Thanks in advance.....

And you can do it inside a <script>
Something like

    prop = project.getProperty("thePropertyName");
    if (prop != null) {
        copy = project.createTask("copy");
        copy.set....
        copy.perform();
    }
