Subject RE: Zip task does not handle dates correctly.more information
Date Wed, 25 Apr 2001 14:41:22 GMT
I have made some tests.
In fact, merging jar files using zipfileset works ! (modern javac compiler
is ok)
My first attemps was to merge external jar files coming from other projects
(ex xalan, xerces, log4j, ....) I think all these jar files do not use the
same jar format (unix,dos,compresssed,...??) so when i merged them there is
a problem for modern compiler.
Workaround: extract all the jar files into a temp dir and launch the jar
task on them.
it is not a pretty solution but it is works !

right now it gives a 404 - I'll try again later.

Obviously we have to fight against a bug in modern javac, that might
be fixed with a newer release.  Anyway, it would be nice if we knew
which change to the zip file causes the problem (and see whether we
can find a workaround).

Given that jikes and classic compiler work without problems I'd say
the ZIP file itself is correct.
