Subject Re: How to set the next week start date
Date Mon, 30 Apr 2007 04:57:55 GMT
Yeah...that's what happens when you tweak sample code to demonstrate something...you always
mix up something

With a unit="week" the offset should only be offset="1" (or maybe -1) for next week.

The confusion you got on the sample you wrote (the bizzare date of 19/15/2007) comes from
the lowercase 'mm' you used in your pattern string....lowercase 'mm' is minutes, I believe
you meant month which is uppercase MM

You will notice that your 'month' value (19) matches the minutes value 09:19 PM

Later,

Ninju

i tried that on Win2000, with jdk 1.5.0_11 ant 1.6.5

<project name="project" default="main">
  <target name="depends">
    <tstamp>
      <format property="touch.time" pattern="mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm aa"
          offset="7" unit="week"/>
    </tstamp>
  </target>

  <target name="main" depends="depends">
    <echo>
       Antversion == ${ant.version}
       Today == ${TODAY}

       $${touch.time} == ${touch.time}
     </echo>
  </target>
</project>

and it gave me =

Buildfile: J:\eclipse_3_2\workspace\AntTest\tstamp.xml
depends:
main:
      [echo] Antversion == Apache Ant version 1.6.5 compiled on June 2 2005
      [echo] Today == April 27 2007
      [echo]
      [echo] ${touch.time} == 19/15/2007 09:19 PM
BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 156 milliseconds


hm, strange 19/15/2007 ??

i think you meant something like =

<tstamp>
    <format property="touch.time" pattern="MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm aa"
          offset="-7" unit="day"/>
</tstamp>

or

<tstamp>
    <format property="touch.time" pattern="MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm aa"
          offset="7" unit="day"/>
</tstamp>


similar to the example from manual :

   <tstamp>
       <format property="touch.time" pattern="MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm aa"
               offset="-5" unit="hour"/>
   </tstamp>


but that gives him the actual date minus | plus 7 days.

I thought the original poster was asking for

"...
the next weeks start date and last week start date
..."

because of that i suggested the <script> solution, where
he can choose, whether the start day of week = sunday or
monday.

Otherwise the </tstamp> would fit of course.

So he should provide some more details ;-)
