Failonerror should apply to directory copy.

           Summary: Failonerror should apply to directory copy.
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: Ulrich.Hermsen@web.de


When copying a directory using the copy task and a fileset, the build fails if
the source directory does not exist. The failonerror attribute of the copy task
does not work when copying a fileset which I believe does not make much sense.

The documentation states that there is no meaning in the failonerror in case of
using a fileset. Why not? If the fileset definition has problems, it makes sense
to honor the failonerror value and to continue without performing the copy
operation. At least in my case it does:

I have to add some pictures for my javadocs from another subproject in my
version control system (MKS). If the subproject is not included in my local
materialization, I would like to continue without those pictures, because the
javadocs are a. not essential and b. still usable.

However, I cannot do this using ant. I set the failonerror property on the
javadoc task. OK! I set the failonerror property on the copy task. Not OK!

Is there another solution?

Regards,

Uli.
