Subject Re: Does ivy add any default filters used by the ant copy task?
Date Sat, 05 Feb 2011 00:53:05 GMT
We're using Netbeans generated build files with Ivy for the dependency
management and it works just fine.  The copy looks similar

      <copy todir="${build.web.dir}/WEB-INF">
            <fileset dir="${webinf.dir}" excludes="${build.web.excludes}"/>

What's interesting is that all the Netbeans copy tasks seem to avoiding
mixing binary and text files even though there are no filters at all.  It
would be interesting if you could try moving the properties to a separate
copy task and see if the problem persists.

We're using all linux (Fedora or Centos).

FWIW: If you're using Netbeans I'm happy to share out Ant build-base files
but it's not doing much more than all the boot strap Ivy stuff and set up
the class path etc.
