Subject RE: Unbundling copying support files from the javac task
Date Mon, 06 Mar 2000 22:06:14 GMT
The "copying support files" feature is one of the selling-points of ANT (at
least for me), that I don't need to know all the details about setting up
the "classes" directory. I like that "javac" is totally self-contained. Is
there a situation where you would want to compile classes but not copy over
the .properties file(s) used by those classes?

+1 for me!
