Import and placeholders

Question asked by mark.smithson on Aug 13, 2007
The Import functionality org.alfresco.tools.Import uses a ImportBinding which returns null as a result for any placeholders in the import, resulting in placeholders being replaced with a blank string.

A problem arises when you try and import something like a web form with an output path such as ${name}.xml. After import the output path is just .xml as the ImportBinding has replaced the placeholder.

Would it not be better to change the ImportBinding to just echo the placeholder back?

It would also be good if the import tool could take a properties file as an argument.
