AW: Changing directory structure in copy

AW: Changing directory structure in copy

A mapper maps file names, thats right.
But a "file name" in Java is the complete path...

The mapper gets the complete path to the file and you could apply the renaming,
e.g. using a <globmapper>.
Otherwise the <package>/<unpackage> mappers wouldnt make sence, right? ;-)

Problem could occur with your ".." in your source layout... as ".." is not part
of a file-path.

<property name="from.dir" location=".."/>      !! location is resolved to the
actual path ;)
<property name="to.dir" location="dbutil"/>
   <fileset dir="${from.dir}" ... />
   <globmapper from="${from.dir}/*/db" to="${to.dir}"/>

not tested ...

Not sure if running in -debug mode would show the mapping (I think not :-( ).
For testing (without really copying) you could try <pathconvert> (just replace
<copy> by <pathconvert>...)
