Subject Removing Class-Path from Ant's own manifest
Date Wed, 02 Oct 2002 06:21:15 GMT
Traditionally Ant's manifest includes a Class-Path entry for the XML
parser we ship, but do we really need that?

I know the idea was that "java -jar ant.jar" could start Ant, but that
doesn't work anyway and we currently highly recommend to use the
wrapper scripts we ship.

The downside of having this entry is that it is a serious problem for
people who want to use a different XML parser in the unit tests (and
probably in different situations as well).  See Detlef Brendle's post
of yesterday or
<http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6019> which is only
fixed because Ant now ships the parser that the original reporter
needed for his tests.
