Subject Re: Why does <javac> recompile even source not modified?
Date Mon, 21 May 2001 22:16:34 GMT
Use:
<target name="utils">
  <javac srcdir="/stp" destdir="/stp"
       includes="util/*.java" 
       excludes="util/Copy.java"
       verbose="yes/>
</target>

IOW: The "srcdir" attr should point up to where the package hierarchy
begins, and the filenames should begin with the package hierarchy -- it's
how it matches source-files to class-files.
