Subject Re: javac and filesets
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2001 17:43:15 GMT

<jar> can accept a nested <fileset>  (yet to try this out).
<javac> can accept a nested <src> element which is a path like structure,
and hence allows nested <fileset>'s within it.
<delete> allows nested <fileset> elements.

Would be simple to have a few patternsets for use within a fileset, for each
function and pass this to a common.xml file.

Question:  How does one pass a fileset or patternset from one file to
another?  Use of params?  Example snippet anyone?

My email RFE is thus moot, unless i run into problems.

T Master.
