Subject copy task not copying
Date Thu, 18 Dec 2003 04:18:07 GMT
I've been trying to determine why my build script that uses the <copy> 
task isn't copying and I'm very stumped. I've explored all the obvious 
(user permissions, parameters and locations of files/directories). I've 
increased verbosity in executing the script. Oddly there are not even 
any logging messages suggesting the copy task was even run.

Any help or information anyone could provide would be highly appreciated.

snip from build.xml

<copy todir="${deploy.home}">
    <fileset dir="${src.home}">
       <exclude name="**/Custom/**"/>
       <exclude name="**/Statistics/**"/>
       <include name="**/Statistics/index.jsp"/>
       <exclude name="**/*.class"/>
