Subject Syntax question
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2001 21:07:43 GMT
I am trying to compile a source tree where I have all my external libs
bundled into a single file, lib.jar.   After reading "Installing Ant",
"Using Ant", and most of "Developing with Ant" sections of the manual, I
have it mostly working.  When compiling, I get errors that imply that javac
does not see the jar file.  So, I'm figuring I used the <classpath> element
incorrectly.  Could someone check this for me?

For my initial testing, I have lib.jar and build.xml in the parent
directory of all the top level source where you can see "com", "org", etc.
So, I am setting src, classpath, and destdir to this directory.  From this
same directory, I also run ant.

I'd appreciate any help anyone could offer,
