Subject Re: newbie question: variable scope

You are most likely using <ant>or <antcall> to call the other targers
this causes a new ant project to be created. porjects created in or modified in
the child projects have no effect on the properties in the main project.

You can use <runtarget> from antcontrib to run the targets in the
same project.
