Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1526) build should be able to locate the Java runtime libraries from properties not sourced from ${user.home}, but inside the current subversion checkout.

    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1526?page=comments#action_12421905 ] 
            
Andrew McIntyre commented on DERBY-1526:
----------------------------------------

Rick: right, we certainly shouldn't stop sourcing the properties from user.home, but maybe
we should also also source an ant.properties from the basedir as well? although, there is
a workaround...

Dan: Thanks, I had forgotten about that nifty Ant option, since I don't ever use it. I think
we should add a note to BUILDING.txt with that suggestion.

And yes, I probably should have left out the "(and should)". the bit in i.e. in my original
comment clarifies what I intended to say.

> I think it is problemmatic that the Derby build process makes use of, for example, ${user.home}/ant.properties.
> I would actually like to be able to build multiple versions of Derby. I also cannot see
what is gained by relying on the user's home directory in this manner. All of this information
could be put into a configuration that can be kept in the project directory. That would work
just fine.
> By the way, I am looking at the top-of-tree code. How do I refer to that in the "Affects
Version" box above? This version is 422938.
> thanx - ray
