Please add force option to archival tasks jar/zip/etc

           Summary: Please add force option to archival tasks jar/zip/etc
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6Beta
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jmendez@nortelnetworks.com


Hello,

I'd like to request a "force" option on the archival tasks such as jar/zip, please.

My current workflow is to create a common jar file for the default build, then
update the jar with different files (same file names) for localized or
customer-specific builds.

If the files for the default stream are modified in source control, then the jar
task does not update the localized files unless the localized files are also
modified with newer file times than the default files.

A "force" option on the jar task would allow me to easily update the generic jar
with the localized files, rather than unjarring the jar, updating the
overwriting the generic files with the localized files, and then re-jarring
everything.

Maybe there will be fewer bug reports about "why didn't the jar task update my
jar?" if there are other users who need a "force" option.

Thanks.
