It is probably that our forrest build system
needs to set the classpath at an earlier stage.

Also people need to use a modern version of Ant.

Rather than doing 'ant test'
i did '$FORREST_HOME/tools/ant/bin/ant test'
and received the same failure.

There are related issues about integrating forrest
into other project build files. We have a number
of issues described in Jira, including one suggestion
from Upayavira about using the Cocoon Ant task.

We are also having problems at cocoon-2.2 with
trying to upgrade to forrest-0.6 due to the way we
are calling it via the Ant build file. There are
some clashing names for ant targets and ant variables.

Sounds like it is time for an overhaul of our
build system.
