Subject Re: Adding to the ant classpath from within a project
Date Tue, 23 Aug 2005 20:59:01 GMT
I am not sure, what problem you are trying to solve. Somewhere there 
should be a logic to include the jar or not. Can you move it outside of 
ANT script? If no, you can create dummy task and <taskdef> it. Or you 
can try to add your jar to classpath of some other innocent <taskdef>.
