Subject Re: copy task and file name case problem
Date Wed, 15 Jul 2009 17:39:26 GMT
Sounds really weird and cannot be justified in context of the copy task.
Try the copy with overwrite="true" parameter. My guess is that because of
some old exercise your files exist in the target directory with lowercase
names. The copy task, by default, does not copy a file to the target
directory unless it is modified. The "overwrite" parameter will force a
copy.

Alternatively, you may try clearing the target directory before running the
copy task (to get rid of existing lowercase name files).
In all my suggestions, I have assumed that you are on the windows platform.

If the problem persists, please post more details including your operating
platform and Ant version.

Cheers
Avlesh
