Command Reference


Get the properties for the deployment.

The Get-Properties command requests information about the object from the server and saves its local instance directory in the AntDepo project depot.

The -direction and -proximity arguments use command settings defined with the module for defaults.

Internally, Get-Properties uses an Ant task to communicate with the server to retrieve object model information which is transformed into Java properties key/value pair format. To reduce load on the server, the Get-Properties command only requires the server to generate data if the object revision has changed since the last invocation. This check can be defeated through the use of the -force flag which will first call Remove-Properties.
