Subject Re: [m2] Adding tools.jar to classpath
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2005 17:05:10 GMT
I am having trouble with adding tools.jar to my classpath. I'm compiling 
against both the javadoc and apt APIs.

Tinkering with the bootclasspath or manually putting tools.jar into my local 
repository are both icky - they work for me but not for anybody else building 
the project. Since every jdk has tools.jar,  could we not just have it 
recognised as a dependency something like this and have m2 glue it in from 
the jdk lib directory?

<dependency>
  <groupId>sun.jdk</groupId>
  <artifactId>tools</artifactId>
  <type>jar</type>
  <scope>provided</scope>
</dependency>
