Subject RE: property value setting

Any properties set on the command line are always set first before any
task is run in ant.

Go ahead and set PW90 in a property to its default value. 
Anytime you use -DPW90="..." on the command line it will be set first
and your default variable will not override it.

Subject: property value setting 

I have a build.xml file in which there is a property value "PW90". And
this value is initialized through the command line, such as: ant -f
build.xml -DPW90="...". 

However, I just realize that 95% of time, the value is same. So I am
just wondering if I could set a default value for this "PW90" inside the
build.xml. Only when "-DPW90=.." is specified on the command line, then
it will be overwritten by the input value. 

I am using ant 1.7 on Linux box. 

Thanks for the tips.
