I am writing ant scripts which configure certain batch files.
I am using websphere ant (the version of ant which comes with websphere)
1.5.2

Most of my ant scripts take parameters ( mostly classpath) from the
properties file (saad.properties)

How can edit the classpath in a batch file/text file from ant?

I read Path Convert tag do that. I dont know how to implement it?

please give an working exmaple.

Is your classpath in your properties file complete or do you need to modify it? Or build it in the build file?

I'm not really sure what you need to accomplish, but you wanted an example using path convert tag. I used it with a copy task to take a path that was specified and "build-converted" in the build.xml (maybe you are wanting to just get it from the properties file?) and put it into a .bat file.

Your mileage may vary, I was using 1.6.2. I used the example code for Copy and PathConvert from Ant Manual.

my build-convert.xml


Original .bat file:


modified .bat file
