Subject Converting Fileset to Propert in Ant 1.5 and below
Date Thu, 05 May 2005 15:52:01 GMT

I have an Ant script which builds a fileset and then converts it to a 
property like so:

<fileset id="debug.class.files" dir="${dir.classes}">
<include name="**/Debug*.class"/>

<property name="debug.classlist" refid="debug.class.files"/>

This works perfectly in Ant 1.6.3 but in 1.5 it doesn't. Looking at debug 
trace I see something like:

"Adding reference: debug.class.files ->

Setting project property: debug.classlist ->"

I get the fileset reference name instead of the actual fileset. Is there any 
way to make this work in older versions of Ant?
