The stripjavacomments filter may work better for this env.
It should work for javascript files as the comments are the same
and it does take into account strings.

<copy destdir="stripped">
   <fileset dir="src" includes="**/*.js"/>
   <filterchain>
      <stripjavacomments/>
   </filterchain>
</copy>
