Diane -

Maybe by using the 	includesfile="${cListFile}"
attribute might help out a bit.

Of course you would have to generate cListFile, but that's relatively straight forward, even
if you have complex conditions.

Follows is how we implemented a class list

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

	<target name="mkLists" depends="tools">
		<java classname="mkClist" args="${source}  ${cListFile}" />
		<java classname="mkDlist" args="${classes} ${dListFile}" />
	<target name="make" depends="mkLists">
		<javac srcdir="${source}" 
The code for mkClist -
import java.util.*;
public class mkClist {

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception	{

		try {

			DataOutputStream dOS  = new DataOutputStream( new FileOutputStream(args[1]));

		} catch (Exception exp) {

				System.out.println("\nmkClist takes two parameters, the directory and the file name to
which output is written to.");
				System.out.println("Example -> java Source ..\\Source cList.txt\n\n");


	private static void mkClassList(String name, DataOutputStream pdOS )throws Exception {

		File dir = new File(name);
		String fileSeperator = dir.pathSeparator;
		String[] list = dir.list();

		for (int i = 0; i < list.length;i++)	{

			File file = new File(dir,list[i]);

			if (file.isDirectory())	{
				mkClassList(name + dir.separator + list[i], pdOS);

			}	else {
				if (list[i].toLowerCase().endsWith(".java") )	{
					pdOS.writeBytes(name + dir.separator + list[i] + "\r\n");

I also have build-order issues (it makes me feel a whole lot better to
finally find someone else who does :)  I have separate <javac> tasks, and
in the order the compiles should happen. One thing you have that's not
right is specifying the full package-path in "srcdir" -- <javac> doesn't
like that. You need to specify "srcdir" as the path leading up to where
the COM/pkg/etc. starts, then include the COM/pkg/etc. as part of the
filenames of the files you want this <javac> task to compile:

  <include name="com/hcl/dal/"/>

But note -- there's no way I know of to prevent side-effect compiles (eg.,
I have a <javac> task that lists 2 source-files, but it ends up with 750
classfiles having been compiled, since Java compilers go build what they
need when they need it).
