Subject Re: ${ant.home} partly broken in Ant 1.6.2 - also ${ant.library.dir}
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2005 18:42:41 GMT
I've downloaded and installed Ant 1.6.2 from and reset my
ANT_HOME environment variable to point to the new Ant 1.6.2 instead of Ant
1.6.1. I opened a command prompt (I'm in WinXP) and ran my build file with
the ${ant.home} line enabled; the build worked perfectly and both of the
imports worked as well.

In short, the problem I'm having seems to be isolated to Ant 1.6.2 within

All of you who said it was an Eclipse problem appear to have been correct
;-) I'll pursue this problem with the Eclipse folks.

I did a bit of experimenting with this, and it does seem to be an Eclipse
issue.  It looks to me like it's a problem with the Eclipse Ant editor
trying to resolve the filename without first resolving properties in the
filename.  If so, that would explain why your work-around works.

Rhino, have you tried running your build file from command-line Ant, or only
from within Eclipse?
