Subject Re: [Bug 54843] java.io.InvalidClassException: org.apache.tools.ant.Location
Date Fri, 03 May 2013 02:28:29 GMT
Thanks, I have closed the bug report as WONTFIX.

I found out that Location and RuntimeConfigurable are the 2 only Ant classes which are serializable.

Maybe someone wanted to save the state of an Ant run in order to be able to restart later
?

Regards,

Antoine
