Subject RE: build successfull but apply did nothing
Date Wed, 19 Oct 2005 07:21:25 GMT
Thanks for the quick response.

The command executes OK when I run on command line. When using the -v option
I get the following:

Apache Ant version 1.6.5 compiled on June 2 2005
Buildfile: build.xml
Detected Java version: 1.4 in: /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_09/jre

There is no foo.o. I assume that the "[apply] foo.c added as foo.o doesn't
exist." is a normal log meaning that foo.c is taken into account since there
is no foo.o. As you stated in your reply it must have something to do with
the apply conditions: for some reason ant thinks that nothing must be done.

If you run Ant with -verbose (or -debug), and my guess above is
correct, you should see messages from <apply> about the file being
up-to-date. --DD
