I've started to use ant build files for project builds. If I edit a property value the value substitution does not take affect immediately. Saving the file does not help. The ONLY way I have found to convince eclipse that a property value has changed, whether in the editor or when the ant file is executed, is to close the editor view and reopen it.

Is there some setting I haven't enabled, or is this an eclipse bug?

I'm using the latest version of the Eclipse Mars release.

It might be a problem of expectation or failure to describe exactly
what's happening. You make a change to build.xml (or other ant source),
then you expect some effect directly? It's only going to be seen when
you invoke ant to perform the build, right?
