We are moving a set of templates from DPTK to JET2. One of these templates is for generating an Ant properties file and contains ant variables, e.g. ${dir.home}. These are being parsed as XPath queries, causing the process to fail.

How do I indicate that these statements should not be processed, or is there another approach?

You have two choices:

1) Escape ${ by using this expression:

${ '${' }

I have added spaces so you can see better - you don't need them.
(That is, evaluate the XPath literal string '${' )

2) Turn off embedded expressions in the entire JET transformation:

a) Open plugin.xml in the Plugin Editor
b) Switch to the Extensions tab
c) Expand org.eclipse.jet.transform and select (transform)
d) Set the 'enableEmbeddedExpressions to 'false'
