Subject Re: Difficulties with the Ant javadoc task
Date Thu, 12 Sep 2002 18:25:08 GMT
I have done some tests (using javadoc directly)
javadoc does not copy the files from doc-files automatically if it has 
not been ordered to generate documentation for the package

javadoc -sourcepath src -d doc src/blah/util/*.java
will not copy the doc-files
but javadoc -sourcepath src -d doc blah.util
will copy the doc-files

Seems that bug ID 4340814 on java has been closed and fixed on 1.2 but 
has been back in 1.3 / 1.4

in 1.3.1_03 and 1.4.0_01 the bug was present
in 1.3.1_04 this bug still is present, but in jdk 1.4.0_02 it has been 
solved again.
When using this jdk ant will copy the doc-files if the sourcepath is 
also specified. (Just like javadoc does!)

Ergo this doesn't seem a bug in ANT.more

Target using for the test

     <target name="docs">
         <javadoc sourcepath="code" destdir="docs" source="1.4">
            <fileset dir="code">
                 <include name="**/*.java"/>
                 <exclude name="**/"/>
