Subject Re: inline property expansion not working as advertised
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2008 15:14:19 GMT
You're right - adding the following line to build build.xml did the trick:
   
          <property file="test.properties"/>

  So why doesn't it work with -propertyfile? I want to be able to specify different property
files on the cmd line, and I was hoping to take advantage of this feature.

  You have to import the property file or declare the properties in the build file.

Thank you,

Subject: inline property expansion not working as advertised


>From the Property task docs
(http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/property.html) 

================================
In-file property expansion is very cool. Learn to use it. 
Example: 

build.compiler=jikes
deploy.server=lucky
deploy.port=8080
deploy.url=http://${deploy.server}:${deploy.port}/
================================

So I created a properties file with the above 
and the following build.xml file:

==================================




deploy.url is ${deploy.url}



==================================

The I ran it as follows:

$ ant -propertyfile test.properties

Here is the output:

==================================
Buildfile: build.xml

test:
[echo] deploy.url is http://${deploy.server}:${deploy.port}/

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 0 seconds
================================== 
I'm using ant 7.0.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
- mps
