Do anybody know how to replace a child tag value based on the parent tag�s attribute using ant script.
<host name="123">
<host name="xyz">
I have to replace the value of alias tag based on the name of host tag
<host name="123">
<alias>Good Morning</alias>

Could anybody help me in this?

Appreciate your help.
