Subject RE: [lang] Release Candidiate 8 available
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2005 20:37:39 GMT
Hello:

I've added the following to RELEASE-NOTES.txt:

- Starting with version 2.1, Ant version 1.6.x is required to build.
Copy 
junit.jar to ANT_HOME/lib. You can get JUnit from http://www.junit.org.

Gary

Ok, apart from the issue that junit.jar had to be copied to ant's lib
directory both build and test appears to go fine on:
  * java 1.2.2 on linux (ant)
  * java 1.3.1 on linux (ant and maven)
  * java 1.5 on linux (ant and maven)


However I think that that information in STATUS.html regarding
dependencies for the project really should be in the RELEASE-NOTES.txt
file. In particular, it should be noted that ant 1.6 is now needed to
build.

And if you do go with using the <junit> tag in the build.xml, then I
think the RELEASE-NOTES.txt file should mention installing junit.jar
into ant's lib dir (or point to the info in the STATUS.html file).

Regards,

Simon
