Good day,

I'm new in ANT, I'm about creating a build.xml for my deployment, and current task that i working on is about do zip file from respective folder.

I want to zip all the file under c:\myproject_folder\xml , but how come i can't use ${xml.dir} in includes tag ? if i remove it and place includes="xml/**", it works! , can anyone please enlighten me on this? thanks in advance!

Within <property>, you are using 'location'. I suspect that the location you are getting is not what you think it is, hence why it does not work. Try using 'value' instead and see it it starts working.

By the way, you can use echoeproperties to dump out the property values, that should tell you what 'xml.dir' is set to when you use 'location'.
