Subject Which javac does ant use in its "javac" task?
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2013 01:23:50 GMT
I am using ant 1.8.4.  My JAVA_HOME is set to the location of JDK 7.  I have a set of classes
that use a list of jars from a given library location.

When I use command line jdk to do the compile it gives different results from using ant script
to do the compile.  The classpath definition is same in both cases.

In the command line execution, it expands the wildcard classpath that is introduced in JDK

In ANT execution, it does not expand the list, so the compile fails.

From what I have read, ANT is supposed to support wildcard classpaths with version 1.8.2 and
I am on version 1.8.4.

So, the questions I have are

-  Which javac does ant use? Is it in the ANT code that doesn't process the wildcard classpath?

-  What role does JAVA_HOME play when using ANT?

-  How can I resolve the issue, so I can use ANT with wildcard classpath ?

Thank you
