Subject My Classpath Should be Separate From Ant's
Date Thu, 05 May 2005 00:43:43 GMT
Hi All,

I tracked down a problem I'm having to the fact that when Ant compiles 
my code (using the <javac> task), it uses the "Ant execution 
classpath". What I'm saying is that the same classpath Ant sets up for 
itself in order to run is also used as the classpath when compiling 
*my* code.

In the <javac> task, set the "verbose" attribute to "yes" and you will 
see tons of Ant-supplied JARs. I don't want to go into too many details 
except to say that it causes versioning problems when my code is 
compiled against those JARs and then run against different JARs.

I was hoping to tell the <javac> task something like, "compile my code 
against these JARs AND THESE JARS ONLY. Do not consider the JARs needed 
by Ant as part of my classpath".

I hope this is making sense. Is there a way to specify this?

Thanks very much.
