      Description

      In the documentation for the "pom" tasks at http://maven.apache.org/ant-tasks/examples/pom.html
      there's a section "Accessing POM information" with a very simple example that I can't get to work.
      Attached is my build.xml and pom.xml which should match the example. I expected the placeholder
      $

      {mypom.version} to be replaced with the version number from the pom ("0.6"), but instead I see
      the placeholder. I also tried with ${mypom.project.version} with the same result.

      The output from "ant":

      Buildfile: /Users/knut/build.xml

      propdemo:
      [echo] The version is ${mypom.version}

      BUILD SUCCESSFUL
      Total time: 1 second

      If I instead use the ANT construct <xmlproperty file="pom.xml" prefix="maven"/>
      I get the properties, but that's not the same thing.

          I believe this will be fixed in maven-ant-tasks 2.1.1,
          at least judging by MANTTASKS-178
