Replace with Properties

I'm looking to use a property file to replace text properties embedded in another file.
Basically,

- load property file
- foreach property
replace propertyName in text file
with propertyValue

How do you get all the property names in a .properties file into a list and then access their values?

thanks!

You have changed your display name to an invalid value. Please restore the valid value prior to your next post.

Your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Ant has a substitution option on its copy task.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

"stevenmartin",

My request that you change your display name to adhere to JavaRanch standards was not a suggestion. Valid display names are mandatory for participation on the Ranch. Please change your display name as instructed immediately.

Be aware that accounts with invalid display names are removed.
