hi ,
a small doubt
can anybody give me how can i print and see my classpath in build.xml?

here is my build.xml

<project name="test" default="all" basedir="./../">

<property name="src" value="src" />
<property name="build" value="build" />
<property name="dist" value="dist" />
<property name="classpath" value="${classpath}:${build}" />
<property name="lib" value="../lib:../../lib" />

<path id="ext.classpath">
<pathelement path="${classpath}"/>
<pathelement location="${build}"/>
</path>

<target name="all" depends="compile" description="Compiles">
<echo> Build Successful </echo>
</target>

<target name="compile" depends="prepare" description="Compiles classes.">
<javac srcdir="${src}" destdir="${build}" debug="${debug}" extdirs="${lib}"
deprecation="${deprecation}">
<classpath refid="ext.classpath" />
</javac>
</target>

</project>

here before compiling i wanted to see the classpath and the files in that classpath.
how to do that with <echo> command

thanx
