Subject Re: Help with new ant task that uses spring
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2005 05:02:56 GMT
I thank you for responding, however, I can able to successfully use 
spring from within ant (using the java and junit tasks).  My java and 
junit tasks (which work) have the exact same classpath as my taskdef.  
It seems that by having it in a taskdef does not allow for classpath 
resources that are directories.  My other resources (spring jars, custom 
pojo's) appear to be visible to the ant task.  Just not directories in 
which resources are kept.
