You mean the 'id' attribute, right ?

Yes you are correct the documentation of fileset does not specify
support for id attribute. While using <patternset id="base.path"> inside
a <fileset> as the sample documented, makes WAR task give out error
"base.path doesn't denote a zipfileset or a fileset"

However, adding "id" attribute to <fileset> seems to be allowed.

<project name="wartasktest">

<fileset dir="lib" id="base.path">
  <include name="**/*.jar"/>

<target name="dist">
  <war jarfile="${war.filename}" webxml="${WEB-INF}/web.xml">
           <lib refid="base.path"/>

I have tried this out, and executing target 'dist' did create WAR file
including all the jars referenced in base.path in WEB-INF/lib. I am
using ant version 1.6.2.
