Subject Readonly ness of properties - Inconsistancy
Date Sat, 02 Jan 2010 06:21:37 GMT


As every one aware, ant properties are readonly once sent it can be changed
and the one which is the first setting is the value.

However, when the properties are loaded from properties files, it is
readonly but it takes the value of the last set one not the first set one as
in the script setting.

This may be coming from reading of java properties files, which are using
hashtable etc.. hence the previous read one would be overidden by the latest
same property set one. Leaving the implementation issues (as one could
always go with own reading/implimentation approach), it may be re- looked at
if this kind of inconsistency are o.k.
