Subject Re: Issue with javac task
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2007 08:37:56 GMT
You need to set the debug attribute to "true" on the javac task.

By default the debug attribute is "false", this corresponds (since
I think ant 1.4) to -g:none.

<javac debug="true" debuglevel="lines"> should give the
same debug info as the default commandline javac.

I observed that the class files generated using ANT javac task is smaller in size compared
to the ones compiled with command line java compiler. But the number of class files and classfile
names generated are same with both tools.
