i would use the xmltask [1] (recommended for xml related stuff),
combined with xpath [2] =


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project>
<!-- Import XMLTask -->
<taskdef name="xmltask"
classname="com.oopsconsultancy.xmltask.ant.XmlTask"/>

<target name="depends">
<xmltask source="./example.xml">
 <regexp path="//@reference" pattern=".+,(h.+),.+" replace="$1"/>
 <copy path="//@reference" append="true" property="foobar"
  propertyseparator="${line.separator}"/>
</xmltask>
</target>

<target name="main" depends="depends">
  <echo>$${foobar} = ${line.separator}${foobar}</echo>
</target>
</project>


Buildfile: /home/ant/foo.xml
depends:
  [xmltask] Cannot append values to properties
  [xmltask] Cannot append values to properties
  [xmltask] Cannot append values to properties
main:
     [echo] ${foobar} =
     [echo] http://blahblahblah1
     [echo] http://blahblahblah2
     [echo] http://blahblahblah3
BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 388 milliseconds


the message "Cannot append values to properties"
is a bit annoying but you may simply ignore it, i don't know
how to get rid of it
