Subject Re: JUnit task not working
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2005 18:33:17 GMT
I see you're using the ant-junit.jar file. That is the Ant Task wrapper for 
Junit and you shouldn't need to reference it ordinarily. It's there to define 
the JUnit task and doesn't include the JUnit core API. You need to include 
junit.jar in Ant's CLASSPATH or in the CLASSPATH of an explicit taskdef 
declaring the JUnit task.
