    rhq:input-property of type = file|directory

    raylite3 Apprentice

      Hello,

       

      How do I use the rhq:input-property of type = file|directory as noted in the docs?

       

      Ant Bundles - RHQ - Project Documentation Editor

       

      I need to pass a number of properties to configure the deployment and I used the longString to pass in the contents of a properties file. But this is limited to 2000 characters and it can sometimes exceed it.

       

      Any help/clarification on usage of the rhq:input-property of type file|directory welcomed.

      Thanks in advance,

      Kiran.

          The "file" or "directory" doesn't mean you are giving it a file of properties. That just means you are giving it a "file" name or a "directory" path as the property's value (as opposed to, say, an integer or a string). There is no way to pass in input properties to a single property via a .properties file. The "input property" element of the ANT recipe is a way that you specify a parameter whose value is to be obtained from the user - the user will provide the value in the GUI via the bundle deploy wizard (that's what its purpose was designed for anyway).
