Subject ant-trax.jar not included in openjdk (on ubuntu)
Date Mon, 28 Mar 2011 16:17:37 GMT

I just wanted to report a problem that I had when I was trying to build
Eclipse on Ubuntu 11.04:
and the build needed ant-trax.jar.

Ubuntu 11.04 ships with ant 1.8.1, which has had ant-trax.jar taken out:
from the WHATSNEW file
Changes that could break older environments:

 * ant-trax.jar is no longer produced since TrAX is included in JDK 1.4+.

The open OpenJDK which ships on Ubuntu does not ship with ant-trax.jar; I
did a full search of my /usr directory and nothing came up.

I downloaded ant 1.8.0, and copied ant-trax.jar manually into
/usr/share/java and my build now works.  I'm not sure if it is a build or a
run time dependancy for Eclipse, but

Should this be something that ant should put back into its shipping



I have no doubt that in reality the future will be vastly more surprising
than anything I can imagine. Now my own suspicion is that the Universe is
not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.
