Subject Propertyfile Task not updating build numbers
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2007 13:49:45 GMT

I created the two targets below to update my build and last build numbers in
my before my build actually starts, but for some reason
they're not updating the numbers.... The propertyfile file attribute
specifies the name of the property file and each nested entry element
specifies how the value of a property file key should be modified. In this
case, the value of the keys "build.internal.number" and "last.number" are
treated as an int and the value 1 is added upon each invocation.... These
two targets are in my build.xml, of course, and they seem to be executing,
but the numbers aren't getting updated in my file... Am I
doing something wrong...??? If so, can someone please point me in the right
direction...??? Do I need to add the optional.jar to my ant lib folder...???

<target name="update-intbldnum">
    <propertyfile file="">
        <entry key="build.internal.number" type="int" operation="+"

  <target name="update-lastlbl">
        <propertyfile file="">
            <entry key="last.number" type="int" operation="+" value="1"/>
