Subject Re: classpath issue in <javac> task
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2007 10:55:22 GMT
You didn't include a code snippet, so it is hard to see what you did.

There is a <classpath> nested element in the <javac> task where you
can specify a classpath either through a "fileset" or via a reference.
You can also use the "classpath=" parameter to specify the classpath.

However, if you do not specify either, it takes the value of classpath
via your environment.

How do you specify classpath? Can you print out the classpath right
before you call the <javac> task to verify that it is set the way you

If you're setting claspath via reference, you can convert the
reference to a parameter and then print the parameter.

<parameter name="classpath.param" refid="classpath.ref"/>
<echo message="My classpath is &quot;${classpath.param}&quot;"/>
<javac ...>
