I created a "src/foo/Foo.java" in addition to my "src/Foo.java".  Neither of them is attempted to be compiled.  My basedir was previously "." and I was executing ant in the dir above src.  That's when I emailed the list.  However, I've tried hardcoding in both my basedir for the project ("/home/jeb/projects/ordermgmt") and the srcdir for the compile target ("/home/jeb/projects/ordermgmt/src") and neither changes anything.

with those set as above, here is some output from my shell:

$ ls src/foo/
Foo.java
$ less src/foo/Foo.java
public class Foo{
        this should break the compiler
}
$ build
Buildfile: build.xml
Project base dir set to: C:\home\jeb\projects\ordermgmt
Executing Target: prepare
Executing Target: compile
Compiling 18 source files to \jdk1.3\jakarta-tomcat\webapps\nnt\WEB-INF\classes
Performing a Modern Compile
Completed in 1 seconds


If I go into build.xml and change srcdir in the compile target to be nonsense, ant exits with a "dir does not exist!" error, so it's finding the directory, it's just not taking a shot at the .java files contained therein.
