Subject Ant not compiling all it should
Date Mon, 07 May 2001 19:12:00 GMT

Has anyone else seen this?

We're running into a problem where ant does not always
recompile what it should.

For instance, you can run ant and it will claim that
everything is up to date.  Run it again and it will
compile some number of files.

This is on Win NT (foul product that it is), with no
network-mounted drives or other weirdness.

Here is a snippet of build.xml showing the compile target:

      <target name="compile" depends="prepare, idl">
        <!-- Compile the java code from ${src} into ${build} -->
        <javac srcdir="${src}" 

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated,
