I am finding that the latest version of MTJ is always trying to
overwrite my build.properties file. We store a lot of important build
information here so this is not good. Is there a reason for this behaviour?

cheers

Hi teknokrat,

MTJ stores build configurations for each runtime configuration (device)
you have on your project inside the build.properties file within the
project's root. This feature allow developers to select which files are
packaged on each device package. Did you create this file yourself ??

Please look at
http://help.eclipse.org/galileo/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse .mtj.doc.user/html/gettingstarted/gettingstarted.html

yes, and thats the problem. Why doesn't it use its own file instead of
co-opting build.properties which is usually used to setup properties for
Ant?

Hi teknokrat,

Well the solution was designed to work like that. My tip for you is
creating a build/ folder and putting your ant build.xml and
build.properties in there :)

It should solve your problem for now!

Actually we'll be uninstalling MTJ. We have dozens of projects, all set
up to work with our continuous integration system. We have unit tests,
metrics, reports, etc being run via ant, with many custom tasks. MTJ
doesn't add enough value for us to to go through such a restructuring
nightmare.
