Subject Re: Zipfileset problem. Help!
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2005 19:02:26 GMT

run your build with ant -debug to figure out exactly which directories
are scanned by ant.

the second zipfileset might be better rewritten
       <zipfileset dir="reports/daily/install" includes="**" />
meaning :
I want all the files located under reports/daily/install

what you wrote
       <zipfileset dir="reports/daily/install" includes="**/install" />
means :
I want to have all the folders called install located under
reports/daily/install, which does not sound likely.
