Subject Using Jar update = yes
Date Mon, 10 Nov 2003 16:33:32 GMT
I've searched the mail archive, and I found a number of email addressing
this problem but I did not find a resolution or workaround.  I have an older
build file that I am trying to run inside of Eclipse using Ant version
1.5.3.  The portion of the ant script in question is listed below.

    <!-- Copy war file to bin -->
	<copy file="${unifocus.war}" tofile="${dist}/${}.war" 

  <!-- Update WAR file -->
       <jar jarfile="${dist}/${}.war" 
        basedir="${dist}" update="yes">

I can copy the old unifocus.war file into the destination directory, but I
am unable to update it with the revised class files and property files that
are in the destination directory.  I'm relatively new to ant, and I am
working with an old build file that was written by someone else.  Does the
update=yes property of jar work anymore?  If not, is there a workaround or a
new way of merging new class/property files into the original jar, along
with updating existing class/property files in the same existing jar?

Thanks in advance for any advice/assistance.
