Did you try file:///c:/qdsdev?

Subject: Setting basedir seems broken now

I just grabbed the latest (9/7/00) nightly build and I'm having a problem with setting the basedir.  I have the following line in my build.xml:

  <project name="qds" default="apps" basedir="c:\qdsdev">

which was working with earlier releases.  However, now I'm getting the following error message:

  build.xml:7: Can't set basedir null due to The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect

I've tried numerous forms for the basedir however I get this error any time I have a colon in the name.  And when I don't have a colon the path is always interpreted as relative which is not the desired functionality.

Any suggestions?

 JT> Is there a way to get feedback per file (although the file

Invoke Ant with the -verbose switch. You will get much more
information than you ever wanted to see - including which files
<javac> compiles.
