LoadFile

Description

Load a text file into a single property. Unless an encoding is specified, the encoding of the current locale is used.

Parameters

Attribute Description Required
srcFile source file Yes
property property to save to Yes
encoding encoding to use when loading the file No
failonerror Whether to halt the build on failure No, default "true"

The LoadFile task supports nested FilterChains.

Examples

    <loadfile property="message"
      srcFile="message.txt"/>
Load file message.txt into property "message"; an <echo> can print this.
    <loadfile property="encoded-file"
      srcFile="loadfile.xml"
      encoding="ISO-8859-1"/>

Load a file using the latin-1 encoding
    <loadfile
      property="optional.value"
      srcFile="optional.txt"
      failonerror="false"/>
Load a file, don't fail if it is missing (a message is printed, though)
    <loadfile
      property="mail.recipients"
      srcFile="recipientlist.txt">
      <filterchain>
        <striplinebreaks/>

      </filterchain>
    </loadfile>
Load a property which can be used as a parameter for another task (in this case mail), merging lines to ensure this happens.
    <loadfile
      property="system.configuration.xml"
      srcFile="configuration.xml">
        <filterchain>
          <expandproperties/>

        </filterchain>
    </loadfile>
Load an XML file into a property, expanding all properties declared in the file in the process.
