Ohh dear,

how very embrassing!! As you said, one pass thr' <javac> and everything gets
compiled, great, but what does one do when they'd like to separate these
various classes into a number of jars? for example, we have a set of
framework classes that are used by the sampleapp classes and I would like to
wrap all framework classes (ONLY) into one jar. But jaring from the root
gives me everything, so is it possible to filter at the directory/package

Not when using Ant, just compile both in a single <javac> pass.

Too much hassle which will give you nothing but increased build times.
