What's the difference between a property defined in a file and imported using the file attribute, and a property defined directly in the build file using the name/value attributes?

In Ant? None - besides the obvious thing that they are defined at different places, of course.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
