Subject AW: Ant - Pure Java?
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2003 10:02:23 GMT
The ant distribution is written in java.
Maybe some third-party tasks depend on native code (executing/forking 
a native program, access via JNI, ...). But that should be written
in their documentation. (E.g. I had written a task for wrapping
the Rational Rose WebPublisher, so it depends on that windows program.)

But I think the main problem is the buildfile, as Dominique said.

We store the current cvs ant jars in cvs and use
them on nt, solaris and linux
