Subject Re: How to make "outputproperty" element work???
Date Thu, 28 Jun 2007 06:07:23 GMT
Hi again,
I have one small question here,if someone can help please....

Ninju, showed how to pass one parameter and get the value but what if I want
to call the same Java file say 20 times passing different parameter value
each time and getting different encrypted result back each time.

So,is there any way to call the <java> or <exec> task  multiple times
passing different value each time...???

Would appreciate if anyone can help on this one too....if not,no issues...I
am already very grateful to the forum members for showing so much support.

Cheers
