Subject RE: Ant 1.9.0
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2013 15:31:29 GMT
Late to the thread here, but I just upgraded to 1.8.4 and have an issue with the javac task
and package-info.class. We have a number of javac tasks with <compilerarg line="-proc:only"/>
and those are generating package-info.class files. I don't see a task attribute or nested
element to directly tell Ant that I only want annotations processing and not actual compilation
of class files. I added a destdir attribute to those <javac> invocations, but it'd be
nice if the task checked for that compiler arg or had an native attribute so that it wouldn't
create the package-info.class files.

after a few weeks of very hard work at my day job I have a quiet day to look at these patches.

I also need to look at possible test failures running the ant test suite on my MAC with Java

coming from the land of GitHub this feels really primitive.) There were a fair number recently,
e.g. the 54298-54305 series.
