Subject API for setting a property reference?
Date Tue, 12 May 2009 15:21:09 GMT
    Is there a way to programmatically (i.e. using the API) set the id of a
property in Ant, so I can reference it via refid later on?
( Similar to "Java Development with Ant" first edition pp 80-81  but in code
<property name="param" value="changes" />
<property name="changes" value="What I want" id="changes.prop" /> 
<property name="selector" value="${param}" /> 
<property name="Message" refid="${selector}.prop"/>
<echo message="Message = ${Message}"/>
