|Until then, I recommend to the original poster that he makes sure that |his code compiles before he checks it into his CVS repository. |That will |largely eliminate this problem (unless you change the case of your |actual classes) and people seem to find many other benefits with this |model as well. This suggestion and the current behavior makes CVSNT not very eligible for XP (eXtreme Programming) with Java.

For somebody new to Java, it |surely seems strange that "foo.java" doesn't mean the same thing as |"Foo.java" on Windows and Mac OS X, but the Javac compiler is just |checking to make sure that your program will compile the same way on |every platform that supports Java. For example, If my class is |named Foo |and its in "foo.java", then on Solaris it will not compile correctly. |Javac on Windows goes through some extra effort to make sure you |recorgnize this problem. So, not to be cliche`, but really it is a |feature of javac and not a bug. | |Actually, I thought that you (Tony) were working on a new "cvs rename" |or "cvs move" command? If so, it should be able to do this kind of |case-changing, since Windows is case-preserving even though it isn't |case-sensitive. | |Until then, I recommend to the original poster that he makes sure that |his code compiles before he checks it into his CVS repository. |That will |largely eliminate this problem (unless you change the case of your |actual classes) and people seem to find many other benefits with this |model as well. | |- Brian | |_______________________________________________ |Cvsnt mailing list |Cvsnt at cvsnt.org |http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs | _______________________________________________ Cvsnt mailing list Cvsnt at cvsnt.org http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
