I have a XML configuration file which is something like this



<root>
<employee>
<name>XYZ</name>
<cube>123</cube>
</employee>
<root>

Now, I want to write a build.xml which modifies XYZ to say ABC
What's the bext way to do this? I tried using a ugly creation of
filterset with copy task. Howvever, I would prefer to use

<filterset id="myFilterSet" begintoken="<name>" endtoken="</name>">
<filter token="XYZ" value="ABC" />
</filterset>

but unfortunately doesn't work because of special characters ("<")

Any ideas?

TIA,
PJ

Look at xmltask from http://www.oopsconsultancy.com/ It makes manipulating XML files from a build easy.

Or better use xslt :-).
It's not so hard.
