Subject RE: Specifying additonal classpath elements when calling the <ant> task
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2007 09:39:29 GMT
Hey Rainer,
Thanks for the pointer, but that tool still doesn't cover my problem. 
My basic need is have something like a nested <classpath> element for
the <ant> task. 
I can't specify either of the javamail or jaf jars using taskdef,
because they don't contain ant tasks.

Maybe http://enitsys.sourceforge.net/ant-classloadertask/ what you are
looking for.
It allows you to add jars to the project-classloader.

cheers
