Subject Re: [classlib] build / test system
Date Sun, 19 Feb 2006 15:43:46 GMT
A friend of mine is currently developing a program to manage Java 
project resources (jars and others) called "gc resource repository"


Some of the features are:

* Central resource repository to share resources between multiple 
  * Needed resource are downloaded and stored in a local repository. 
  * Dependencies between resources are solved. 
  * Setup the classpath with all needed resources (jars). 
  * Start java progams with the needed resources. 
  * Ant integration to setup the classpath. 
  * Modular ant build script support 
  * Eclipse classpath builder to setup the classpath in eclipse.

You may want to take a look at it. It is distributed under the Apache
License, and I guess I could convince Rene Pirringer (the main developer
of gc-rr) to contribute it to Apache Harmony if this is desired.

Best Regards,
David Tanzer

Pinky, Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?
Well, I think so Brain but if Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, 
why does he keep doing it?
