Subject: RE: How to rename a file 

I think Dhirendra misses Raj's point - that the jndi jar
file could have any version number. 

The following (adapted from the move example in the manual)
would move jndi_x.y.z.jar to jndi.jar as long as it was the
only file that matched the regular expression (the results
are indeterminate if e.g. jndi_1.3.1.jar and jndi_1.2.1.jar
exist in the same directory) 

  <move todir="my/jndi/dir">
    <fileset dir="my/jndi/dir"/>
    <mapper type="regexp" from="^jndi(.*)\.jar$$" to="jndi.jar"/>

I haven't tested the above code, but it should be close enough
to experiment with and debug.
