Subject Re: REPOST: WAR/EAR and empty dirs

To clarify, set the "filesonly" parameter to "false" as shown in the example.  I had it backwards
in my answer.  Sorry for the confusion.

The WAR and EAR tasks extend from the JAR task, which in turn extends from the ZIP task. All
of these tasks support the "filesonly" parameter. If set to "true", both files *and* folders
will be added to the archive. By default, only files are included along with the folder information
for each file -- but not the actual folder. When the archive is extracted, you may think that
folders were included since folders are created that have files within. But empty directories
are not included.

So, to answer your question, just set the "filesonly" paramter to "true". A simple example
using the jar task is shown below:

Hope this helps,
