Subject: Java source files not part of any package

Hello Everyone,

I'm learning to use Ant 1.7.0 as part of Xcode 3.1.2 on Mac OS X  
10.6.  We have a separate directory called Common/ where we keep  
common java source files. These files need to get included, not all at  
the same time though, when compiling our Java applications.  What  
would be the best way to do this?

If I add Common/ to srcdir, it compiles everything inside when I only  
need a one or two.  The FAQ mentions that "If you have Java source  
files that aren't declared to be part of any package, you can still  
use the <javac> task to compile these files correctly - just set the  
srcdir and destdir attributes to the actual directory the source files  
live in and the directory the class files should go into,  
respectively."  But how to do this exactly? Do I need two separate  
javac tasks like the following?

<javac srcdir="../../../Common/src" destdir="../../../Common/bin"  
classpathref="lib.path" debug="on"/>
<javac srcdir="src" destdir="bin" classpathref="lib.path" debug="on"/>

Thank you.
