Subject build.exe for ANT
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2001 16:52:23 GMT
Hi everyone,

I've written a Windows executable called build.exe for launching ant.
If you place build.exe in the $ANTHOME/bin directory, when launched
it will automatically finds any currently installed JDK, adds tools.jar from
$JDK/lib
to the classpath along with all .jar files in $ANTHOME/lib then launch ant.

By putting this executable in $ANTHOME/bin and adding $ANTHOME/bin to the
classpath, I was able to run ant without setting any environment variables.

If anyone wants to check it out, I've posted the source+binaries at:

http://southgatesoftware.com/jakarta/ant/

If anyone with the power wants to add this to the ant project itself, please
do!

-Mike Jennings
