Property value
Command line input to the mergeprop command table identifies the value types you can use to manage property files with the mergeprop utility. These property files allow you to:
*Use the value of another existing property by reference.
*Use the value of a Java system property by reference.
*Specify a list of any number of syntactically valid values. The list entries are evaluated sequentially, and the first to be successfully resolved is the value of the property.
*Specify a hexadecimal value.
In addition, two special value types can be included in the delta file specified with the mergeprop utility. See Delta file. These value types are valid only in the context of a delta file:
*A value formed by appending a specified string to a current value
*A system-generated globally unique identifier (UUID, or universally unique ID)
