Subject AW: Taskdef classpath does not work - partII
Date Thu, 28 May 2009 15:28:34 GMT

I have some additional information:

My classpath is very long.
When I change the classpath order an exception happen somewhere else! 

Is there a restriction of the length of a classpath that will be handled using taskdef?

Betreff: Taskdef classpath does nor work


I do a taskdef with 1.7.1 like:

<taskdef name="myTask"
   <classpath refid="java.classpathid"/>  </taskdef>

When I display the classpath referenced in java.classpathid I see a certain jar.
When I run the task it fails, because it can not find a class that is based in that certain

When I add the jar in the classpath of Ant it works.

This is strange, because lots of other classes and jars are found using this task. (The task
starts does a lot and the final step fails)

Has Ant a problem with long classpaths or does it support only one classpath for all taskdefs????
(doesnt make sense to me)

I can not find the reason. Please help!

Greetings Jürgen
