This is a basic task that can be used to track build numbers.
It will first attempt to read a build number from a file (by default, build.number
in the current directory), then set the property
build.number to the value that was
read in (or to
0, if no such value). It will then increment the number by one and write it
back out to the file. (See the PropertyFile task if you
need finer control over things such as the property name or the number format.)
