Subject AW: AW: Easier Way To Check and Install jars
Date Tue, 08 Jan 2008 06:22:16 GMT
<copy file="a" tofile="b"> copies "a" to "b" only if 
- "a" is newer than "b" or 
- "b" is not present.

If you want that "a" should always be copied, set "overwrite" attribute to true.
See manual::CoreTasks::copy
