Subject Re: [classlib] build / test system

If redistributing Eclipse's jars is not an issue then I think it would be
good to put them to SVN and set up the ant build script accordingly. This
will simplify build process.
Also this can be applied, for example, to BC provider jar - we'll avoid
questions like: which version of BC did you use? Everybody will use jar that
is distributed with Harmony code base and is used to test it.

Thanks,
