Hi,
I would like to get actual value of version qualifier that buckminster used to replace .qualifier in build.
I need this because I want instrument builded plugin with cobertura and I dont know plugins file name.

I thought there could be some property like ${version.qualifier}, but I can't find anything.

Thanks

This is described in the BuckyBook - see the reference section on
Buckminster ant tasks.

I tried to use buckminster.versionQualifier, however in description it says
The task performs substitution as directed by properties. One set of properties control strategy selection given a component name, and one set controls the revision and timestamp formats

but I just want to get result when this task was performed, not run the version qualifier calculation.

In task attributes section it says
property=«name» The name of the property that will receive the result.

So if buckminster.versionQualifier is used to generate qualifier replacement somewhere (may be in site.p2.zip action when zip file is generated with qualifier revision) and property that is passed to this ant task, can't I just use this property to get replacement that was generated, and if so what is that property's name?

thanks,
Alex

Hi Alex,

The ant task is not normally used by the Buckminster site.p2 action so
I'm afraid the property in question is a bit hart do obtain. You can of
course use an ant task of your own and call it explicitly but that will
duplicate several actions and give a lot of overhead.

I suggest you enter an enhancement request where you explain your
use-case and add a proposal for how this would work to best your needs.
I imagine that the change needed in Buckminster to make the property
available in a uniform way is fairly trivial.

Regards,
Thomas Hallgren
