Yes, it does. When ant is started as a command line tool. Tools.jar is 
put in the classpath by the startup shell script under ant 1.5.x and 
lower, and by in ant 1.6.x. When ant is started from an 
IDE, the author of the specific IDE plugin or connection class takes 
care of setting tools.jar in the classpath. Where exactly tools.jar is 
taken from in the case of Eclipse/Ant, I do not know.
