Subject propertyfile task and escaping
Date Tue, 14 Dec 2010 11:09:29 GMT
Hello,

Scenario: Ant 1.8.0 on WinXP

is there a way to avoid escaping chars by propertyfile task?

The following task

<propertyfile file="myFile.properties">
	<entry  key="MY_URL" value="http://mydomain/"/>
</propertyfile>

produces the following file

MY_URL=http\://mydomain/

that is bad.
I know there are other solutions, like echoing a new property file
(but I have a lot of other properties inside the file that I don't
have to change, and I would like not to list them just because of the
new file creation) and/or using the simple replace task (but I should
know the original value of the property to indicate the token, and I
don't know it).

Any suggestion?

Thanks a lot
Jo
