Subject Re: how to capture javac output using ant1.3
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2002 23:47:11 GMT
Are you using Ant Console?  If not, how are you launching Ant from WSAD?

>From what I recall in my brief try of using Ant Console, the output is
generated in the Ant Console window.  The errors may even show up under
Tasks, although I'm not sure.  I'll have to give it another try soon.
