Strange Ant-Editor warning [message #1386078] Fri, 13 June 2014 11:04 Go to next message

When I edit an ant file with Eclipse's Ant-Editor (version Kepler + SR1) for every property definition it warns me with 'property does not support the "value" attribute'

Even if I let the editor create that statement itself, i.e. if I just write "
<pro
" and then hit Ctrl-Blank and then pick the "property with name and value" suggestion it automatically inserts:

<property name="name" value="value"/>

which is immediately flagged with a warning 'property does not support the "value" attribute'.

But "property" DOES support the value attribute, so why is this flagged with a warning? What am I missing?

Example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project name="test" default="test" basedir=".">
    <property name="name" value="value"/>

    <target name="test">
    </target>
</project>

Line 3 is flagged with said error. Any idea, why?

Hi,
It is working fine with me, can you create a bug with some details of your environment and workspace.

Hm - that's interesting! To provide an example I just created a new workspace and in it a new Java project and in that I declared a new build.xml file and entered a minimalistic ant-script skeleton. And in THAT ant-script a line like
<property name="foo" value="bar"/>
has NO yellow wiggles and no warnings!

So, this must indeed somehow have to do with the workspace that I am using! But I don't want recreate my entire workspace! So, how can I convince the ant-editor (and only that!) to clear its settings?

You can try "Restore Defaults" in the Preference page for entries under "Ant".

Alas, "Restore Defaults" did not remove the yellow wiggles for property tags... Sad

But meanwhile I found, that I can get rid of these wiggles and warnings, if I go to Windows => Preferences => Ant => Problems tab - and under the label "set the severity level for the following buildfile problems" set the entry for "Property setting tasks" to "Ignore".

But why does this yield warnings if I set this to warning level? What is the "issue" that it claims to detect here?
