Subject Re: Vim's .swp files triggering jar to re-execute
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2007 00:50:34 GMT
The JAR task doesn't look at the source files, but at the contents that is
suppose to go into the JAR. Unjar the contents of the JAR and take a look at
what is included in the JAR. If the .swp files are included in the JAR,
that's your problem.
Do you include and exclude specific files in your JAR?

The .swp files are suppose to be temporary files and should be deleted when
you quit VIM. Are your .swp files sticking around?
