Subject Proposed correction to ant-FAQ
Date Wed, 20 Aug 2003 12:50:41 GMT
Hello

For the FAQ : "Ant creates WAR files with a lower-case web-inf or JAR files
with a lower-case meta-inf directory. "

<current-answer>

No it doesn't.

You may have seen these lower-case directory names in WinZIP, but WinZIP is
trying to be helpful (and fails). If WinZIP encounters a filename that is
all upper-case, it assumes it has come from an old DOS box andchanges the
case to all lower-case for you.

If you extract (or just check) the archive with jar, you will see that the
names have the correct case.

</current-answer>

<additional-info>
With WinZIP (version 8.1 at least), this can be corrected in the
configuration.  In the Options/Configuration menu, in the View tab, General
section, check the "Allow all upper case files names" box.  The META-INF and
WEB-INF will look correct.
