Subject RE: Flattening files in <jar> task
Date Mon, 24 Feb 2003 18:07:05 GMT
I'm starting to think Alexei might be right. Given the new Resource class
introduced by Stefan, maybe a <mapper> could be added to FileSet itself,
which would return Resources[] instead of File[] in it's list method, each
Resource having a srcName and destName, identical without a mapper, but
different with one. Just thinking aloud... --DD

I think that you are right, the jar task does not support mappers from the
build file.
You can put this idea forward as an enhancement request for ant under
The next issue will be where will we want to have the mapper element (one
mapper per zip or jar task invocation or one mapper per fileset).

fileset itself does not seem to support
nested <mapper> either

(that actually is not surprising since the FileSet class
is not the one that trasforms "sources" into "targets",
but I would have thought that any "transforming" task should)
