Subject javadoc task does not pick up package-info.java from included filesets
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2007 09:42:14 GMT
Hello ANT Users,

I have a lot of files from which javadoc needs to be generated. 

Not all java files from a package need to be published in javadoc.

To enable this i use a number of <fileset>s that provide input to
javadoc task.

Something like :

<javadoc>
<fileset dir="module1/src">
 <include name="A1.java"/>
 <include name="B1.java"/>
 <include name="C1.java"/>
</fileset>
<fileset dir="module2/src">
 <include name="A2.java"/>
 <include name="B2.java"/>
 <include name="C2.java"/>
</fileset>
.... //More filesets

</javadoc>

However to my surprise package-info.java which i placed in packages is
not included as input to javadoc task. I had to modify the fileset
include to put in package-info.java

<fileset dir="module1/src">
 <include name="**/package-info.java"/>

And i had to do this for every file set, violating "DRY".

Shouldn't javadoc task pick this artifact (package-info.java) given that
this file is meant only for the javadoc tool ? Why should the user have
to explicitly include it ? 

Do ANT-experts think including the package-info.java where ever its
found too much magic ? 

Thank you
-Prashant
