Subject Re: a dependency mystery with junit
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2008 22:21:46 GMT
First, I am not sure where I would specify those properties (as I am not 
sure how ant is providing a classpath to Junit) so I have not been able to 
try your suggestion. 

More importantly, though, your comment does not address my main conundrum, 
which is: why does the junit call work fine if I simply separate the two ant 
targets into separate invocations of ant, one to do the build and one to run 
the test?
