Subject Ant + Hibernate: two solutions
Date Fri, 08 Oct 2004 14:41:41 GMT
Hi everyone.  Many thanks to William Lopez and Eric Burke for finding two
different solutions to my Ant + Hibernate grief.  I've blogged their
findings here:

and you can find the files here:

Is it Ant's fault?  Is it Hibernate's?  I don't know; all I do know is
that my students (all bright, hard-working people) have lost tens of hours
over the past four weeks wrestling with classpaths and the multiple
impedance mismatches between various open source Java tools.  This
"accidental complexity" is one of the main reasons why colleges and
universities stick to toy systems, instead of using real industrial
strength tools like Hibernate, Tapestry, Eclipse, and so on in courses:
they simply can't afford to have half their students lose 10-20 hours at
the start of term getting a working environment set up.  I hate to say it,
but the Microsoft .NET tools *do* work much better out of the box...
