Subject Ant build shows BUILD SUCCESSFUL even for no java sources.
Date Tue, 20 May 2003 22:10:12 GMT

 Doing an ant build for a project, the build is shown to be successful
 even though the source folder is empty and there are no java sources under

 For example:
 If we have a build.xml file and an empty src folder to which the
 build.xml refers, and there are no source files under it.


 Now the ant build sees this as not an issue, and happily claims that the
 Build is successful, whereas there was nothing to build(compile) in first
 Is there a way we can make ant to recognise this as a problem and show a
 Build Failure.
[ I am looking for native ant solution, I know that we might embed other
 perl scripts etc. in the build.xml to look for *.java and complain if it
doesn't see any
there ]

Thanks! for any help.
