Parameters in Java task

Parameters in Java task

Parameters in Java task

Hi guys,
The java class that I wan't to run (with java task) requires a commandline parameter : a single String character.
I know that in the build.xml I can specify attributes...but It's not possible to let the user choose...
How do I let the user insert a command line parameter???
Thanks a lot!!!

actual target
<target name="initiator" depends="compile"
         description="execute app.initiator,requires config parameter">
        <java classname="app.Initiator" fork="true" classpath="classes"/>

RE: Parameters in Java task

Use the input task to get user input and assign it to an Ant property, then use an <arg> tag inside the java task to pass the value of that property to the java program as an argument.
