           Summary: Multiple source directory in single package support.
           Product: Ant
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: cp1965@ROGERS.com


Often in a Java project, one needs to separate the java sources of a package 
into different sub-directories to reflect some functional association.  All 
the java sources are still part of the same package but they reside in 
different sub-directories (or ultimately some other directory).  I find myself 
in this situation often when the number of java sources in a package grows, it 
is desirable to separate the sources of a package into sub-directories while 
keeping the same package.  By keeping the same package one avoids multiple 
import statements.

Java does not prevent this sort of configuration.  I find that the problem is 
ANT itself.   ANT forces the java source directory to be the same as the 
package directory.  This is obviously not always the case.

I suggest allowing the user to have different source directory and package 
directory for certain source files.   This would be an additional feature used 
only in special cases.
