Subject Override ignored for property file
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2007 11:25:29 GMT

Dear Ant Users, 
I have inherited a project where I'm trying to get a calendaring system
(which also uses Ant and Tomcat) to load its applications from
C:\foo\apache-tomcat-5.5.17\webapps. I've set a build file at c:\docs
and settings\userid\ which links to a
and foo.options.xml. These point to the context.xml file in catalina
home\web apps\META-INF\context.xml (I've posted one the lines for the
tomcat context: which
is in the file). 
Having started Tomcat using Ant, I noticed that the context file is not
being copied to the catalina home so I ran ant -d tomcatstart and get
the following error message:
override ignored for property
[echo]Load user properties from c:\Documents and
[property]Loading c:\Documents and
Override ignored for property Property
${project.home} has not been set Override ignored for property
tomcat.home Override ignored for property Override ignored for
property org.bedework.config.options
AFAICS Ant ignoring the overrides so Tomcat loads the incorrect context
file since it cannot see it.  
I would be very grateful for any pointers as to how I should debug this
so that I can get these files to see the overrides and also learn for
the production installation.

Many thanks in advance,
