there's also another solution with antcontrib <if>, something like =

<fileset dir="T:/test" includes="*.ear" id="ear.files" />
        <equals arg1="${toString:ear.files}" arg2=""/>
            <echo>No files !!</echo>
            <echo>Files in fileset =

i know the use of ${toString: ... } is not recommended, but i use i
quite often

Regards, Gilbert

Apart from Jan's suggestion, which should work for Ant 1.6, Ant
1.7beta comes with a new <resourcecount> condition

<condition property="dir-is-not-empty?">
  <resourcecount when="greater" length="0">
    <fileset dir="..."/>
