Subject RE: ant compiles, but no class files
Date Tue, 17 Oct 2000 22:39:58 GMT

I am guessing you are using an old version of ant. Try typing
ant -version

If that doesn't work, you need to upgrade to version 1.1, or perhaps even
better, you can wait a week and upgrade to 1.2.

Upgrading to a later version of ant may involve other changes so a
workaround with older version of ant is to request a classic compile.
  <property name="build.compiler" value="classic"/>

Subject: ant compiles, but no class files

Hello list,

I am hoping you may have seen this problem before.  Ant is seeing my source
directory and claims to have compiled everything, but no class files appear
in the destination directory (or anywhere else on the machine).  Ant does
create all of the other directories and files it needs to, so it doesn't
appear to be a permissions problem, and the source files are there.  84 is
the correct number of files it should compile btw.  The brief output appears
below, if anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them.
