Subject Re: Question Title: ANT -->> Directory access problem
Date Fri, 17 Dec 2004 15:01:11 GMT
Since the build.xml is reaching for files in src and compiling to 
classes..jarring to dist
it would really make more sense to locate build.xml in root
(the ../ will get confusing after awhile)
~Just my 2 pennies~
