ANT 1.3 solves this problem. I have been able to use the JAR task successfully.

Subject: jar/zip tasks and directory case problem
Whenever I use the jar or zip tasks to zip the contents of a directory,
any subdirectories of that directory get stored in lowercase instead of
whatever the case was when the directory was created. This causes
problems when building WAR files and EAR files for some application
servers (they don't like meta-inf or web-inf for example, when it should
be META-INF and WEB-INF).
I'm running ant 1.2 on Win 2000. I'm sure this wouldn't be a problem on
Linux. Using WinZip, I have no problem.
Any ideas on a workaround for this problem? Does 1.3 correct this by any
