Following the responses of this other post we’ve tried multiline in our sonar-project.properties file. It seems like we are doing something wrong because is not ignoring the files anymore.
Just for clarification. It does work when put in one line, we just wanted to improve readability.
I’ll be honest, your use case isn’t common, so I had to read up on it and from what I saw in my reading this should work. The sonar-project.properties file started life as a simple Java properties file, so your \ syntax should work. However, it’s possible it has migrated away from that over the years.
According to the Javadoc, your CRLF test probably won’t work, but I’ll ask first: did it?
