Subject Re: ant optional?
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2010 14:33:45 GMT
Maven's test scope only means that it needs to be on the test classpath.  It would not introduce
a runtime or even compile time dependency of jdo-api.jar.  Optional means that if Maven can't
find it, compilation should still succeed, which it wouldn't if it weren't available.  Again,
<scope> and <optional> are orthogonal concerns.
