Subject RE: windoze absolute path messes up CLASSPATH setting

Thanks for your attention on this matter,

Daniel, could you please elaborate on this?

To the others whom responded (thanks):

The problem is that the colon in the absolute path (c:\...) is one of the separators for the
classpath setting in ant.  Thus if you use an absolute windows path in a classpath setting,
it just doesn't pick up the value in the classpath (it seems to ignore it).  This is evidenced
by running ant in -verbose mode and verifying that the absolute classpath entry is not picked
up.  A relative classpath setting is.
