Read xml file

  I am new to ant and currently I am trying to read a value from an xml file that stores the build information for mulltiple projects.  I am trying to get the build date for project "B" and store that value in a variable.  As simple as it may seem I cannot access the value using property tag along with xmlproerty.  I need to indicate to ANT that it needs to read the second BuildInfo node but I don't know how to do so.

<xmlproperty file="${ServerConfigFolder}\${FileName}" semanticAttributes="true" collapseAttributes="true"/>
    <property name="lastBuildDate" value="${onRequestStart.configuration.buildInfo.buildDate}" />

Please help, it is driving me crazy.  The format of the xml file is as follows.

<onRequestStart xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" id="application_wynch">
        <buildInfo Project="A">
        <buildInfo Project="B">
        <buildInfo Project="C">
