Subject Re: Make destDir attribute of Javac task optional, please
Date Thu, 12 Oct 2000 13:42:33 GMT

If I understand this correctly, the only reason you would want the destDir
optional is to have your .class files and .java files in the same directory
structure.  The current CVS code takes the first source directory and makes
it the output directory if destDir isn't set, and it doesn't throw a
BuildException.  Is this not the functionality you want?

Subject:  Make destDir attribute of Javac task optional, please


last week, i submitted a patch to make the destDir
attribute of the javac task optional.

It may not have been clear from my last mail,
that i really need this feature, and hope to
see it in the 1.2 release.

Please let me know, if you have problems with this.
