ant.bat does not put .zip files into classpath

I'm not sure this is a good idea. It's better to avoid it for good and not 
relies on it anymore. The only way to not support this for instance is to not 
implement it.

AFAIK Oracle is the only one to redistribute their binaries as .zip which is 
unfortunate since it does not have any manifest information and will confuse 
people trying to deploy their webapp under Tomcat since it only picks up .jar 
files in WEB-INF/lib. zip files are not picked up.

The best thing to do is to rename your .zip into a .jar so that it is commonly 
accepted without problems everywhere and to anticipate when Oracle will decide 
to ship there drivers as .jar. (It also makes a clear distinction between 
what's real zip archives or not but that's another problem)
