Subject RE: Copying external file into WAR
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 17:23:05 GMT

Then maybe you could accomplish it by doing a copy command. Copy the file from its source
to where you stage the war file, either before you execute the war task or within the war
task.  After I usually run my clean target, I do all my staging in the init target even if
the compiled classes paths don't exist yet!  I create the directories and copy my files in
advance in the init target and when the javac task runs, it has no problem or issues with
the folders already pre-existing; it would be the same as an incremental build or not running
the clean target.  I hope this helps.
