I think I understand what you want to do. I had a similar problem in which was set with multiple
targets, a classlist file and restrictions to the includes list. Don't think you need to implement
the full build as I but the following might work (based on your given data)

<target name="root">
	<javac srcdir="${root}" destdir="${build}" includes="," />

<target name="sub-dir1" depends="root">
	<javac srcdir="${sub-dir1}" destdir="${build}" />
	<javac srcdir="${root}" destdir="${build} includes="sub-dir1/**.java" />

<target name="sub-dir2" depends="sub-dir1">
	<javac srcdir="${sub-dir2}" destdir="${build}" />

<target name="make" depends="sub-dir2">
	<echo message="This will force javac to start with root and then work it's way through"/>
	<echo message="provided the time comparisons generate the desired response"/>

The above should produce the effect you're after...

Hi all,

Is it possible to have javac not compile a whole tree. I have to control the
the order of compilation. My directory structure is as follows:

root directory:

                        many files *.java

                        many files *.java

                        many files *.java

I have to compile and stage these files at different points through the
build process. I have to start at the root and compile the two files there
to the exclusion of the rest of the files in the resident sub-directories.
My initial niave attempt was as follows:

  <target name="compile"  depends="getSource" >
  <!-- Build the root -->
    <echo message="Building the root"/>
    <javac optimize="${optimize}"

This blithly motors along and compiles the whole shebang, sub-directories
included and eventually fails in the sub_dir1 build when it cannot find
dependancies for resources have not been found because they have not been
staged yet. Could someone give me an example of the includes/exclude
directives that would be necessary to ensure that only and are compiled?
