Subject use of canonical in <import>
Date Tue, 27 Apr 2004 09:55:22 GMT
Jesse has found a problem with the use of <import> in a modular
build system - in netbeans.

Basicly the issue is whether to canonicalize the imported file name
or to use the absolute path.

Jesse makes a good point for using the absolute path. The problem
is that this is a incompatible change.

One could make the point that this is a bug and so should be fixed.

(Use may need to be made of FileUtils.normalize() as well as
File.getAbsolutePath() has given problems before).
