Cannot find Ant libraries when building from NetBeans
-----------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-5023
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5023
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Knut Anders Hatlen
            Assignee: Knut Anders Hatlen
            Priority: Minor


Building Derby doesn't work out of the box in NetBeans. The wiki page http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/BuildingDerby
instructs NetBeans users to specify the ant.library.dir property in order to get the build
working.

The Ant documentation says the following about the ant.library.dir property: "The following
property is only set if Ant is started via the Launcher class (which means it may not be set
inside IDEs either)"

Since the property is not guaranteed to be set, I suggest that we replace references to "${ant.library.dir}/ant.jar"
with references to "${ant.core.lib}" in the build scripts. According to the above mentioned
Ant manual page the ant.core.lib property should always be available and point to ant.jar.
Changing this makes it possible to build Derby from NetBeans with no special customization.
