I have a XML configuration file which is something like this
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" />
but unfortunately doesn't work because of special characters ("<")

Look at xmltask from
It makes manipulating XML files from a build easy.

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