      Description

      When using org.nuxeo.ecm.automation.core.util.Properties#loadProperties, all lines finishing by backslash "\" will escape the line to append the next line. No matter the number of these. (if escaped or not)

      Use case:

      • I use "Document.Update" (Update Properties) Automation operation
      • In my "properties" parameter I put these values:
        dc:title = test \
        dc:description = description
        
      • I get
        dc:title = test dc:description = description
        
      • I should have
        dc:title = test \
        
      • And If I put:
        dc:title = test \\
        dc:description = description
        
      • I get the same result (what ever the number of )

      Proposal:
      We activate or not by system property this part of code in org.nuxeo.ecm.automation.core.util.Properties#loadProperties:

      if (line.endsWith("\\")) {
                      line = line.substring(0, line.length() - 1);
                      prevLine = prevLine != null ? prevLine + line : line;
                      line = in.readLine();
                      continue;
      }
      

      Warning:
      This method is used by workflow, automation and can have lots of impact on existing implementations.
