Howdy Y'all, I am new to using ant. I am using it to build applet jar files. The way I'm doing this is by creating a temp directory and using the <javac> task to compile the main applet class to a destination of the temp directory. When I first did this <javac> would conveniently compile all of the dependancies to the temp directory and then I would use <jar> to zip it up. When I first did this I was using ant 1.4.1 which came with WSAD 5.0. Now I am using ant 1.5.3 which comes with WSAD 5.1.0. Now <javac> does not compile the dependancies. Can one of you ant / java compiler gurus please explain to me why this does not work any more? Is it related to the upgrade of WSAD? I pass in an argument of: -Dbuild.compiler=org.eclipse.jdt.core.JDTCompilerAdapter Is there another argument I can pass in which would make it compile the dependancies again? Do you have some other slick way of compiling applet jars? Please help! Thanks in advance, Mark
