Hi,


I need to set some of the properties in System in such a way which can be accessed in other applications.

For example..



Instead of the writing the above code in client application, i want to set it through ant build of host.

The Ant build runs the host app, correct? If so, you can pass -D parameters. If not, please elaborate more on what the Ant build does

Yes the ant build runs on the host. Could you please tell me the way to set the "-D" parameters in ant build?
