Subject re: C2 Classpath Inclusion Ant and Shellscripts
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2000 09:40:49 GMT
In response to my query in the ant-dev list, the following very helpful  
response came back today.

This appears to provide a mechanism for including all the libraries in  
Cocoon 2 directly in the build.xml file rather than having them passed from  
the calling shell script - one more step towards platform independence and  
ease of maintenance.

Anyone feel like committing a change?
