Subject write property as part of task definition
Date Thu, 16 Jul 2009 20:56:07 GMT

Hi, 

Is it possible to do this? 

I have a property that contains two XML elements as a String: 

    <property name="foo"
value="&lt;include&gt;bar.as&lt;/include&gt;&lt;include&gt;baz.as&lt;/include&gt;"
/>

And I want it expanded into the execution of a task as if I wrote this: 

    <compc>
        <include>bar.as</include>
        <include>baz.as</include>
    </compc>

I expected this to work:
    <compc>
        ${foo}
    </compc>

But I get the error: 
The <compc> type doesn't support nested text data ("${foo}").

I'm assuming this isn't an error with "compc" but is instead in error in how
I'm expanding ${foo}. 

Can I do this in Ant?
