Subject Running build.xml located in jar file
Date Sat, 11 Jan 2003 05:51:26 GMT
I have created a jar file that include the ant class files, a build.xml 
file and my application class files.

I have not been able to get ant to find the build file within the jar 
file.  If I place the build file in the same directory as the jar file, and 
run ant as follows:

java -cp application.jar, ant runs the build file 
successfully.  The problem is when the build file is not in a directory, 
but instead is bundled within the jar file, then ant reports "Build file: 
build.xml does not exist, Build Failed".

I'm using a single jar file (which includes ant class files, application 
class files and build.xml) so that my entire application, and it's setup 
scripts (build.xml) can be easily deployed.  For what it's worth, the build 
file contains sql tasks that I used to create database tables when running 
the application.

Any help would be appreciated.
