I have  a folder called "custom" in CVS which has the following hierarchy

custom -> src
custom -> jsp
custom-> xsl
custom -> classes
....

Can someone please let me know how I can use ant script to extract the "custom" folder from CVS. After that using ant I need to build the java files inside "custom--> src" and put the compiled classes inside "custom -> classes".

thank you

You cannot 'extarct' it from CVS, you need to check out the directory and then write an ant file to run there.
Here is are some sample ant commandds to get you started, you will have to tune them as you progress to your needs -

<target name="compile">
      <javac srcdir="src direcory" destdir="destination direcotyr  includes="files to include"
         excludes="files to exclude">        
         <compilerarg value="args" />          
        <classpath refid="classpath" />            
     </javac>      
  </target>

<target name="create.jar" description="Test.jar">
            <jar destfile="Test.jar">
                  <zipfileset dir="..Specify" includes="Specify package names to be included here" />
            </jar>
</target>

You can actually have an ANT target extract things from version control.
See the specified sample file above, which contains just such a target.

Thanks for replying.

I am using the following target

 <target name="moveJarToAppServer" >
   <move todir="{$appserver.webappname}/WEB-INF/lib"  verbose="true" >
    <fileset dir="${install.jar}">
        <include name="**/*" />
    </fileset>
   </move>
 </target>

This does not do anything. Is there a way to find out if all the paths etc are correct? May be by putting some print statements. Something similar to System.out.print() in Java.

Please let me know how this can be done.

Thank you
