I tried to do a checksum of a directory twice and compared the two values, I get 2 different values from checksum. Can anyone tell me what is the mistake i am doing?

Answer i get -
Buildfile: build.xml

[echo] value of prop is 8a76f4364f3d593d9af177630b22b431
[echo] fb3eb4fb22641ba916e55230b597b12a

Take a look at the 'todir' property in . This would imply that the first use will add files to the directory so that this will then change the checksum for the second use. A quick test shows this to be the case. Maybe you should specify a different directory to place the checksums.
