Subject RE: symlink - which ant jar do I need?
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2007 12:01:49 GMT
Hello Wayne,

In the future, you may want to make things like that clear from the
start, as i have been running a simple test to create symlinks, not
delete them. Having changed that, i can tell you that the following
build script does work to delete symlinks under Solaris 10 (not sure
about Linux):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project name="bollo" default="symlinktest" basedir=".">

    <target name="symlinktest">
            <symlink action="delete" link="target" resource="source"/>
            <!-- <symlink link="target" resource="source"/> -->
