1) <include name="**/*.java"/>
means that it should look in the subdirecotries of ${src} as well

2) <include name="*.java"/>
This will not recurse into the subdirectories

If 1) is not working there is some other problem, please take a look at the
replace token
you've provided.

Subject: Recursive replacement of text

    My Java files have a license header, which shows the version no of the
software. For every release, I'd like the version no automatically updated
with a value that I provide.
    To do this automatic recursive replacement (recursing thru
subdirectories), I am facing problems (still a newbie to ant).
    I am trying :

<target name="versionSource">
    <replace dir="${src}" value="v${version}">
        <include name="**/*.java"/>

Now I have two properties defined  - "version" and "previousVersion", which
I'd provide for a build.
The problem is  - how do I get this to recurse through all the
subdirectories under src ?

Also - is this the right approach for my task ?

Thanks in advance (sorry about the previous mail, went accidentally before I
completed - M$ outlook..)
