Readme.txt - fbug - Project Hosting on Google Code. Using JConsole to Monitor Applications. Automation using ANT - Replacing tokens in a file - rajesh. Description Replace is a directory based task for replacing the occurrence of a given string with another string in selected file.

Automation using ANT - Replacing tokens in a file - rajesh

If you want to replace a text that crosses line boundaries, you must use a nested <replacetoken> element. The output file is only written if it differs from the existing file. This prevents spurious rebuilds based on unchanged files which have been regenerated by this task. Parameters Examples replaces occurrences of the string "@@@" with the string "wombat", in the file ${src}/index.html.

Parameters specified as nested elements This task forms an implicit FileSet and supports all attributes of <fileset> as well as the nested <include>, <exclude> and <patternset> elements. If either the text you want to replace or the replacement text cross line boundaries, you can use nested elements to specify them. replacefilter In addition to allowing for multiple replacements, optional nested <replacefilter> elements allow replacement values to be extracted from a property file. McCoy - MDC. I find this page insufficient to teach me what I need to do.

I have themes for Firefox hosted on AMO. I have been trying to use McCoy to make them secure in anticipation of fx3. I have installed and run McCoy. I have used McCoy to install an update code to one of my themes. But now what? How does one test a theme's security? This test theme is sitting in its directory. Bottom line here: you need to have both a themer and an extension developer go through the process of securing a theme, and then provide the rest of us with step-by-step directions.

I find the discussion on updates.rdf, for example, to be entirely unhelpful. Ed Hume (SphereGnome, etc.) Right now, I build my xpi files using an ANT build process. Mozilla Mccoy tool from the command line - Techno barje. We have seen in the previous post how to build an headless xulrunner application.

My first use case was enabling the Mozilla Mccoy application to launch from command line. That allows me to build a bash script which create nightly builds of a firefox extension automatically updated by Firefox every day!. McCoy. McCoy is a simple XULRunner based application that enables add-on authors to provide secure updates to their users.

Specifically it focuses on the process of digitally signing update manifests so the client applications can verify the integrity of a manifest retrieved over normally insecure channels. The goal of McCoy is to enable the secure hosting of add-on updates in as convenient a manner as possible. The primary target audience of McCoy is add-on developers who for whatever reason SSL based hosting is not an option. McCoy - MDC. McCoy is an application that allows add-on authors to provide secure updates to their users.

Applications periodically look for and install updates to their add-ons. It's important that the update information retrieved has not been tampered with since being written by the add-on author. Specifically, it focuses on the process of digitally signing update manifests so the applications can verify the integrity of a manifest retrieved over normally insecure channels. If you want to learn about the technical details of McCoy then visit the project wiki. Installing McCoy To use McCoy you need to download and install it. There are some known issues with running McCoy on Linux.
