Class War

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.lang.Cloneable, SelectorContainer

    public class War
    extends Jar

    An extension of <jar> to create a WAR archive. Contains special treatment for files that should end up in the WEB-INF/lib, WEB-INF/classes or WEB-INF directories of the Web Application Archive.

    (The War task is a shortcut for specifying the particular layout of a WAR file. The same thing can be accomplished by using the prefix and fullpath attributes of zipfilesets in a Zip or Jar task.)

    The extended zipfileset element from the zip task (with attributes prefix, fullpath, and src) is available in the War task.

    Since:
    Ant 1.2
