Subject Re: Ant lib vs. Classpath
Date Tue, 27 May 2003 14:24:39 GMT
junit.jar is a special case here.  It must be in the same classloader 
as the <junit> task itself.  The recommended solution for junit.jar is 
to place it in ANT_HOME/lib.  I view junit.jar as such an integral part 
of all my development needs, that its *home* location is just in 
ANT_HOME/lib - I don't maintain it anywhere else.
