Subject using dynamic declarations..
Date Thu, 15 Oct 2009 09:32:09 GMT


I was wondering if it is possible to use 'dynamic declarations' within ANT.
Please check the example below. In the line '<echo>${value.${id}}</echo>', I
would like to print a value which is dependant on the id. But for now, I
cannot use this construction, because it prints '${value.${id}}' literaly.
If possible, how can I still use this construction?  

I hope someone can help. Thanks!!


<target name="check.numberr">
	<var name="value.3" value="3" />
	<var name="value.4" value="4" />
	<var name="id" value="3" />     <!-- now it is 3, but it can also be 4 -->

	<echo>${value.${id}}</echo> <!-- how to use this? -->
	<echo>${value.3}</echo>       <!-- this works -->
