The magic of xpath in an Android Application ANT Build script:


<xpath input="AndroidManifest.xml"
expression="/manifest/@android:versionCode" output="android.version.code" />
<xpath input="AndroidManifest.xml"
expression="/manifest/@android:versionName" output="android.version.name" />
<xpath input="AndroidManifest.xml"
expression="/uses-sdk/@android:minSdkVersion" output="android.sdk.version.min" />

Now you can use those values to pass to your doc generate/report tasks, app versin number update task, etc.

    Hi,
    My questions is how to write some value to manifest duaring executing ant build.xml
    /manifest/@android:versionName

    for example I would like to write version name duaring every build..

    I have tried

    But it looks that xPath has never been used for that
    any suggestion/advice in this direction?

    Thanks
