Ant is not behaving the way I would like. It is adding a "\" before my colons in a database URL.
The part in build.xml that does this:
From my build.properties, the value referenced above:
I do not want to use the <replace file="..." token="..." value="..."/> because we have several developers working on this project and the token being searched for may not be the same on each developer's machine.
It looks like Ant thinks it's generating a properties file, since escaping colons like that is mandatory in a properties file. If you don't want a properties file, perhaps you should use some Ant task other than "propertyfile".
