Hey there!!!

I am having trouble identifying the required package for the build scripts to compile.

I have huge list of files that are now deployed in applications which don't need them.
My build scripts is compiling unwanted/unused java files inside a web application.
How can I possibly identify only required package/java classes that needs to be compiled from an ant build scripts?

Appreciate the help.

How do you know they aren't required? Forget about Ant for a minute. How would a human know?

JBoss Tattletale should do what you need. It will give you a variety of report on what JARs require which other JARs.
