Subject How to use multiple filesets with classpath AND copy
Date Sat, 11 Jun 2005 00:15:05 GMT
Hi. I'm building a handful of Struts webapps, and would like to do  
this in my build scripts:

I want to specify a collection of .jar files from several different  
directories, and I want to refer to the entire collection with a  
single id. Now, I can make a fileset or filelist for a directory,  
give it an ID and reference it in a classpath or a copy structure.  
But I need to make two or three of these. I don't want my copy tags  
or classpath tags to have to reference more than a single file- 
structure ID.

I need some kind of nested fileset. Is there any other way to do it?  
I want the equivalent of the following (of course, using filelists or  
whatever inside). Any ideas?

<fileset id="myFileSet">
     <fileset dir="foodir">
         <include name="log4j-1.2.8.jar"/>
         <include name="lucene-1.4.2.jar"/>

     <fileset dir="bardir">
         <include name="something.jar"/>
         <include name="somethingelse.jar"/>


     <fileset refid="myFileSet"/>


<copy todir="${}" preservelastmodified="true">
     <fileset refid="myFileSet"/>
