Subject Re: [classlib] build / test system

Hi Stepan,

And if redistributing the Eclipse jars was an issue then we could simply 
make use of the Maven jar repository at ibiblio.org. The jars necessary 
for using the Eclipse compiler can be obtained from there without the 
need to download the entire Eclipse platform (see 
http://www.ibiblio.org/maven/eclipse/jars/jdtcore-3.1.0.jar) which 
reduces the "pain" considerably.

Ant build scripts could simply make use of the "get" task (with the 
"usetimestamp" option to avoid unnecessary downloading) to get the 
jdtcore-3.1.0.jar and then use "unzip" to extract the 
jdtCompilerAdapter.jar that is contained in there. The modified 
trunk/make/build-java.xml file inside the attachments for HARMONY-57 and 
HARMONY-88 use the ibiblio.org repository in just this way to obtain 
various xml support jars and even the junit jar.

Best regards,
IBM United Kingdom Limited
