I have what I think is a dumb newbie question. I have no doubt this thread
is over my head.

I have a source tree with client code, server code, and common code

I'd like to set up ant to just build the .jars for the server, or just
build the .jars for the client.

My gut take on how to do this was: set up server-jars and client-jars
targets, each of which sets properties for generic classes (calls javac)
and jars (calls jar) targets. But this won't work due to immutable

What's a good approach to solve this problem in ant?
