Hi,

works as designed, means when working with patterns like *.jar you 
have to use a fileset.

Subject: Deleting file does not work?

Hello,

I have to copy a self-built lib from one project to another and before
that I want to delete all previous versions of that file that might
exist (the version number is contained within the filename).

Therefore, I wanted to use this:
	<!-- remove old versions first -->
	<echo message="${external.libfolder}${jar.prefix}-*.jar"/>
	<!-- outputs: ../app_client/lib/jaf-*.jar -->

	<delete file="${external.libfolder}${jar.prefix}-*.jar"
verbose="true"/>


The above does not delete the file, while this does the job:
	<delete verbose="true">
		<fileset
file="${external.libfolder}${jar.prefix}-*.jar">
		</fileset>
	</delete>


Is this supposed to be this way or what am I doing wrong?



Lars
