Subject RE: junit problems
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2001 17:17:26 GMT
Hello, I had the same problem. My quick fix is to declare a task for it
within your build file. I know this is not the best solution but it works.
Below is what I did.

<taskdef name="junit"
classname="" />

Hope this help.

Subject: SV: junit problems

According to "Ant Installation Guide" (Ant 1.3) I should add "junit.jar" to
my ANT_HOME/lib directory, to make the junit task to work. I have done that,
but it doesn't seem to help.
Any more hints out there?

Download  "optional.jar". then put it in your ANT_HOME/lib   directory.
I had the same problem.
You can find the link from the user manual (not at hand sorry).  Same page
as downloads i think.
