Propertys in Ant are immutable, so you can't reset the value (with vanilla Ant
- ant-contrib may let you).

Depending on what you need the system property for, though, you may be able to
use <sysproperty>.

Subject: Settting environment variables



I am having a set of ANT build files. I want to change "Path" and "include"
environment variables only in build file.
I tried the following options to reset "include" variable in the build file.

<property environment="env"/>
1.<exec executable="cmd">
    <env key="include" path="${new.includepath}"/>

2.<property name="${env.include}" value="${new.includepath}"/>

3.<property name="env.include" value="${new.includepath}"/>

4.<property name="env.${include}" value="${new.includepath}"/>

When I tried to echo "include" variable in the same build file, it is still
showing the default old settings.

Is there any other way to modify the environment variables only for some
instance and not for other?
