Subject Re: Quick Start guide for new developers

Hi Siddharth,   Yes adding them to the command line will only effect that session, but i think
that is what we should do. There are very confusing problems that can occur when you have
arbitrary jars on your global CLASSPATH variable when you runs various java programs. If all
the developer is doing is _ONLY_ running derby then it is probably fine, but that is rarely
the case. For instance, perhaps a person is running another tool that is using ORO, but is
instead using another version or ORO. There maybe class version problems that are mysteriously
present because the person didn't realize that the ORO that was used was the wrong the one
from the CLASSPATH variable and not from his local directory.To simplify things, it would
be nice if the ant build did                  java -XX:MaxPermSize=512m  junit.textui.TestRunner
org.apache.derbyTesting.functionTests.suites.All in some task (adding the appropriate classpath
entries) for the user.The getting started guide is great, by
  the way. good work... It would be really good if you could embellish it to including setting
up an Eclipse environment.dave   ----- Original Message -----From: &quot;siddharth srivastava&quot;
