Subject Re: Setting the Endorsed Directory Location
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2007 21:28:46 GMT
Ugh.... my apologies, Martin.

My system had been set to use Java 5 as the default.  Inside the buildfile I
was using Java 1.4, but when I typed "javac -help" from the command line I saw
the -endorseddirs option!

In any case... I tried the extdirs option, but that doesn't work either; I'm
beginning to think I need to modify the boot classpath... but apparently when I
set that option, it *overrides* the boot classpath instead of appending to it. 
This may not be appropriate for this list, since this becomes more of a javac
question, but how does one modify the bootclasspath instead of overriding it?

Regards,
Anthony Frasso
