Subject RE: How to store date time as a long value into a text file.
Date Sat, 03 May 2008 05:03:06 GMT
Sorry for dely in replying... I tried tstamp ant task, but it gives me the
date and time in the format I specify in pattern, while I wanted a long
value produced by  System.currentTimeMillis() in the created file.

Thanks for your response.
Regards
Ravi.

Did you look at the tstamp task?

            <tstamp>
                <format  property = "some-property"  pattern = 
"yyyy-MM-dd_HH-mm-ss"/>
            </tstamp>
