Subject Forcing the classpath
Date Sat, 26 Mar 2005 14:45:49 GMT
I am attempting to find a way to force the contents of the classpath
passed to javac. 
To put that another way, I would like to remove the ability for a user on
my network to pass any classpath to javac other than the one I (the
administrator) specify.

Ideally, a user could write a build.xml which contains a javac task, and
it would work normally, except that if they try to set the classpath
property, they would get a warning like
"Warning:  setting classpath for javac not allowed.  Using [my classpath]

I know this may sound a little weird, but you can assume that I am
operating in an environment where malicious users might attempt to add
unapproved or unsafe code to the classpath.

Does anyone have any experience with a situation like this? 

I'd be greatful for any advice.
