I am afraid that you have some fundamental misconceptions about ant
dependencies versus make. Ant is not make in an XML format, and it does all
this stuff automatically.

Before you continue with this migration exercise, go read any and all of the
introductory ant documents listed off the web site; these all explain
concepts that you urgently need to know about.

Subject: Problem in specifying dependencies

test    :    OWN

${JAVADIR}\Company.class    : ${CLASSDIR}\

${JAVADIR}\Item.class    :    ${CLASSDIR}\

 i've set my peoperties in XML file like this
<property name="OWN" value="${JAVADIR}\"/>
  <property name="OWN" value="${JAVADIR}\"/>

because i want to write a target like

<target name="new" depends="OWN">

i want to find the way in which i can achieve my purpose otherwise i'll have
to write all the class file names in the dependency list
