By "exclude is not working" I assume javac compiles classes in
mypackage/p1/testpackage/** - right?  Why do you think the presence of
more than one <src> element is the problem?

The include/exclude elements only control which source files Ant
considers when putting together the command line.  It will not pass any
source files under mypackage/p1/testpackage/ as files to compile to
javac.  You can run "ant -verbose" to verify that.

There may be other reasons why javac decides to still compile those
classes.  In particular if one of the other classes references a class
in mypackage.p1.testpackage - after all javac knows where to look for
