Subject Re: About deleting jar files - i think it is a clear BUG

Still I am wondering: why is it necessary to include the JAR file to the
classpath at all?

I cant see any sense in including any JAR file that is found:

If I need a file, I will tell so in my build file.

If I dont mention a file; I expect that ANT will not notice this file at

This behaviour looks to me like: "we take everything we can" and it
has already proven to be error-prone.
