Subject Re: Can you set a property using input task into a properties file
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2008 18:08:42 GMT
Take a look at the input task and the echo task...

Use input to get the user's input to a property.

Then use echo to whatever file you want...something like:

<input message = "enter data: "  addproperty="someprop"/>
<echo message="someprop=${someprop}" file="myfile.prop"/>

HTH,
