Subject RE: Combining static file with <echoproperties> results
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2006 15:10:33 GMT
Using Ant-Contrib (not recommended unless necessary) you can do it like

		<propertyselector property=""
		<for list="${}" param="prop">
				<propertycopy property="@{prop}.value"
					<entry key="@{prop}"

Subject: Combining static file with <echoproperties> results

I asked a question yesterday with too much of a preconceived idea of the

solution ( and I'd like to try again in a more 
general fashion.

Can anyone suggest a way of combining the information from one file with

the results of an <echoproperties> that doesn't involve a temporary 
file.  I'm doing it now using one, but that grates on me, and I feel 
there must be a simple way of doing so.

Currently I'm doing it like this:

     <target name="build-app-properties" depends="init">
         <echoproperties destfile="${}">
                 <propertyref prefix="app."/>
                 <mapper type="glob" from="app.*" to="*"/>

     <target name="compile" depends="build-app-properties">
         <javac .../>
         <concat destfile="${class.dir}/" >
             <fileset file="${}"/>
             <fileset file="${}"/>
         <delete file="${}"/>
