Subject Win32 Command line length problem
Date Fri, 21 Feb 2003 22:47:54 GMT
The command line run.bat in CVS does not work at present, due to too many jars 
making the classpath longer than DOS can handle as an environment variable.

Does anyone know how to extend the allowable length of an environment variable, or 
how to get java to start by passing the classpath in some other way?

It is possible to pick out just the jars that are needed, but that breaks as soon as 
someone updates a jar.

Would it be reasonable to use Ant to start Cocoon, as Ant can be give Cocoon its 
classpath in a sensible way?

Or have the build process create a libs directory specifically for the command line, 
only giving those libs that the command line needs?


I'd like to get the command line to work for both the source and binary distributions, 
and this is one of the things that's in the way at the moment.
