Subject Filter Tokens - set to last occurance?
Date Fri, 08 Sep 2000 03:53:28 GMT
Hello all,

I hope someone can shed some light on this problem.

I have a properties file that has three sections; one for development,
one for qa and one for production.  Each section has the same properties
set, but with a different prefixes (dev, qa or prod).  Including the 
properties file and using each property is working well.

I pass in the build target that specifies which environment to build for.
Based on this, I execute one of three config targets:


Each of these have several copy tasks that takes a .in file and creates a file
that has certain tokens replaced.  For example:

    <filter token="cookieDomain" value="${qa.cookieDomain}" />
    <copyfile src="${session_config_file}.in"
              filtering="yes" />

What I am seeing is that the filter tokens seem to be set to the value
where they apprear LAST in the xml file.  Whether or not that target is
executed or not.  Given the ording above, all filter tokens are set to
the 'prod' settings.  I have checked the value="" values and they are
correct before AND after the copy/filter takes place.

This would seem to be opposite of the properties behavior which is to 
set to the first occurance (parse time, not run time?).

Is this the correct behavior?  Is it a bug?  Is there anything else I can
do?  Or do I have a bug in my files that I just haven't seen yet?

I'm using ant 1.1 (7/18/2000)
