1. What are those 3 properties files?  I don't know.  What's in them?

2. Generally - any kind of machine dependent properties (like paths etc) should
be placed in some properties file (i.e. outside of build.xml - which should be
kept generic).  Then you "include" the property file in build.xml.

3. The same goes for deployment.  The files that have deployment extension
really should be something like  The reason for this is so
that you can specify a different deployment directory than your build directory
(as an example).

If i recall correctly, the original problem was that you had some kind of
machine dependent path info in your  build.xml file, and someone suggested using
an external properties file.
