Subject RE: BUG: ant 1.4.1 startup script on cygwin
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2002 15:15:05 GMT
I'm running ant just fine under Cygwin since I uninstalled the JDK from it's usual location
and installed it in a location under the Cygwin root. In my case:


This has the effect of enabling Java in both the Windows CommandLine and the Cygwin shell.
Oh, I almost forgot, I also have my copy of ant installed under the Cygwin area in the same
manner (and Tomcat etc...)

Hope this helps.
