Subject The verbose flag
Date Thu, 04 May 2000 20:20:32 GMT
To all:

For some reason my javac task does not seem to compile my classes. I am using
JDK1.2.2 on an SGI and I have the build.compiler property set to "classic". Ant
says that it is compiling (I think) but no classes are generated and no errors
are reported.

I looked at the source code for the javac taskdef and noticed that the code
outputs the command line arguments that are passed to the compiler to a log if
the verbose level is set (I this done with the -verbose flag?). However, if I
use the -verbose flag Ant doesn't output the arguments given to the compiler.
What am I doing wrong?

Following is an excerpt from my build.xml file and following that an excerpt
from Ant output using the -verbose flag.


  <!-- Compiles the source code -->
  <target name="compile" depends="prepare">
    <mkdir dir="${build.classes}"/>
    <javac srcdir="${src.dir}"
           optimize="on" >
      <include name="amtec/io/*.java"/>
