Subject Re: Trying to override old definition of task emptymacro
Date Wed, 05 Jul 2006 16:24:05 GMT
Our builds for release are slightly different than our internal
development builds (like we sign jars on internal builds with a dummy
test certificate vs our real certificate on shipping builds). There
are only a few places that are different and those differences are
isolated to an ant file that has overrides for a few key tasks.

It seems like a sensible thing to me and I don't understand if there
is actually a problem or not with what I am doing. Is the "Trying to
override old definition of task emptymacro" message a warning? Is it
not doing what I think it will do? The verbage "trying to override"
makes me think that something is wrong. Why isn't the message If the
message was less passive ("Overriding old definition of emptymacro" or
"Failure to override old definition of emptymacro") I wouldn't be
asking the question.

I did search for this message but never found anything that made me
comfortable just ignoring it. If you (or anybody) can shed some light,
I'd appreciate it.
