Subject Re: How to convert back slashes to forward slashes
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2007 17:50:59 GMT
I believe you need to use the <pathconvert> task, see
http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/pathconvert.html
Below is from an example:

    <path id="wl.path">
      <pathelement location="${wl.home}/lib/weblogicaux.jar"/>
      <pathelement location="${wl.home}/classes"/>
      <pathelement location="${wl.home}/mssqlserver4/classes"/>
      <pathelement location="c:\winnt\System32"/>
    </path>

    <pathconvert targetos="unix" property="wl.path.unix" refid="wl.path">
      <map from="${wl.home}" to="${wl.home.unix}"/>
      <map from="c:" to=""/>
    </pathconvert>

 will generate the path shown below and store it in the property named
wl.path.unix.

/weblogic/lib/weblogicaux.jar:/weblogic/classes:/weblogic/mssqlserver4/classes:/WINNT/SYSTEM32
