Subject RE: Help with choosing build property file
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2005 15:16:22 GMT
Hi Jan,

That looks promising. Is there a way to make it work on both windows and unix? I develop on
windows and deploy to solaris.

Thanks

Rakesh

<!-- set property 'computername' -->
<propery file="${computername}.properties"/> 
<propery file="default.properties"/> 

Because properties are immutable the more specific values in the first file are prefered.
If that file does not exist (eg ${computername} is not set) it does not matter.

You have to set the property 'computername'. On WinXP you can use a env variable: <property
environment="env"/> <property name="computername" value="${env.COMPUTERNAME}"/>
