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

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


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.


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.
