Subject [GitHub] ant pull request #49: [master branch] - Fix BZ-58683

    [master branch] - Fix BZ-58683 

    The commit here fixes the issue reported at
    This commit along with fixing the issue reported in that bug, also has updated the `Symlink`
task to now start relying on the Java 7 support of symlinking through the use of `java.nio.file.Files`
APIs. This now allows the task to move away from spawning process(es) for dealing with symlinks
and also allows this task to be functional on non-unix systems which support symbolic links.
    P.S: For 1.9.x branch, I can create a separate commit, without using Java 7 APIs to fix
this bug, if we do want to do that there. Let me know.

    BZ-58683 Honour the overwrite=false for existing symlinks. Plus, use Java 7 java.nio.file.Files
support for symbolinks, in symlink task
