ANT is still a bit of black magic to me and I am having trouble running a build under Linux. I am using the PropertyFile task which I think is in ant-contrib, which I have. However, since it is not in $ANT_HOME, I don't understand how to make ANT find it. Can I use a symbolic link in $ANT_HOME/lib to the contrib directory or must I add a link for every jar file instead? Or is there a better way? TIA.
Thanks. I decided to do a symbolic link so I don't have to remember to copy each time it is updated. However, it turned out that ProperyFile is not in ant-contrib but rather ant-nodeps instead which I had to install.
