Subject Properties and subprojects

Still struggling with Ant & properties ... Now I came across a problem with ant
By default, when you launch a subproject, all the properties defined in the
parent project override
the subproject properties.
But if I define in the parent project a property called src.dir, and in the
subproject a property with
the same name, they may not have the same value, so you need to keep the
subproject value when
running it from the parent project.
I added a patch to, so now you have a property called properties where
you can
explicitely give the list of properties to use from the parent project. By
default, you still have the
old behavior of using all properties from the parent project.

You can download the new file from
And the diff is
