I have my install paths and project home path in a property file. I would like to use those an add relative paths in the build.xml file for coping stuff and so on.
My goal is to be able to run the same build.xml file on linux and windows. They are going to have diffrent propery files.
Is that possible?

Need some more infos? :-) ok: os-specific pathseparators (/, ) are handled by Ant - choose the one you want (but be consistend in your buildfiles). I preper / because sometimes you have to mask the . You can load platform specific property files if you name them according to the value of the java system property "os.name". This is (like build-in props) available without doing extra work with ${os.name}.
