The nested <fileset> inside <path> will by design only pick up files,
not directories - make that

<path id="my.classpath">
    <pathelement location="${catalog.dir}" />
    <pathelement location="${catalog.dir}/catalog.jar" />

as you don't need the directory scanning/pattern matching
functionality of <fileset> anyway.

> The fileset does not include the directory

Even if it would include the directories matching include patterns,
your above <fileset> probably wouldn't work as the include/exclude
patterns are meant to be paths relative to the fileset's dir attribute
- whatever ${catalaog.dir} resolves to, I doubt it would be a valid
path relative to itself.
