Subject RE: ant and I have a failure to communicate (on compile targets/j avac tasks)
Date Tue, 09 Jan 2001 21:56:53 GMT
probably an old version, though I don't know how to check.  I downloaded it
last summer (I've been away from my job at school since september, and now
I'm back).  Is that a known bug with the <javac> task?  Also, I edited my
script to try "java -D...blahtomcatblah.ant.Main -debug" so it can't be my
script (build is indeed a wrapper script around ant, sorry, I thought that
was the stock config.  Shoulda mentioned that.)  Thanks for your help.  I
guess I'll d/l the newest version in any case.
