Subject Re: Delete task should be failing for UNC path that does not exist
Date Thu, 26 Feb 2009 20:20:17 GMT
You need to set failonerror="true" to kill the build when the delete
fails. Of course, Ant is depending upon the OS to give it a "proper"
exit value from the delete command. I can't say for certain whether
UNC paths might be cause problems in this respect.

BTW, why are you using UNC anyway. Normally, you don't do things in
Ant outside of the ${basedir}.
