Subject RE: Need help running Ant under cygwin on Win2k
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2002 22:48:05 GMT
Under windows, the ";" is indeed the separator in the CLASSPATH, but when you are in the Cygwin
environment (i.e. the Cygwin window or any program started from that window), you are in a
very complete Unix environment and that means your CLASSPATH separator is changed to ":" (it's
a Unix thing! ;-)

I have had good experiences running Java and Ant and Junit under Cygwin on a W2K box that
I am forced to have in my cube and I'll try to find time someday to write up the steps that
I took. Having recently had to have a new OS image installed on my machine, I will have to
do the Cygwin/java/ant/junit/younameit install again and I might as well take careful notes
and write it up afterwards. When that's done, I'll post the link to it on my personal website
in a message on this list.
