Description martin.raie 2011-09-09 14:23:15 UTC
Since version 1.8.2 Ant does not override system properties. For example -Duser.name=newvalue does not override default value as it did before 1.8.2. Other non-system properties can be successfully overridden via -D.

Simple test case demonstrating the problem

NB It's not only user.name that's affected, java.home exhibited the same behaviour, so presumably all system properties are the same.

AFAIU this is the side-effect of this change
Comment 3 Michele Vivoda 2012-04-28 17:05:15 UTC
Please fix this.
Comment 4 J.M. (Martijn) Kruithof 2012-05-28 15:53:23 UTC
Thanks for the report, and the pointer to the change that caused this behaviour.
