Lost functionality by deprecating Rename task





------- Additional Comments From jan@materne.de  2004-04-26 06:20 -------
The <rename> task performs only a FileUtils.rename().

replace=true  and dest-file exists
- <rename> would delete the dest-file
- <move> does the same

replace=true  and dest-file does not exist
- nothing special to do
- simple <move> works

replace=false and dest-file exists
- <rename> throws a BuildException
- <move> will delete the dest-file (the 'overwrite' attribute of the renameFile
() seems to be ignored).
- you shouldn´t depend on a BuildException here. Cleaner buildfiles would call 
a <delete> before the <move>

replace=false and dest-file does not exist
- nothing special to do
- simple <move> works


I won´t close this because of the 'overwrite'-statement above. Maybe that 
section will be updated. But the <rename> will be left deprecated.
