Hi Jaikiran,

Thanks for the reply. I thought it must have been some thing like that.
After reading your link and as a maven noob and not much better with
ant, I see I have to copy those dependencies. But it is not clear where
they need to be copied to. The example shows "lib" but I don't see how
javac knows to look there unless it is by default. My build directory is
a local git repository so the structure is "bin" and "src" in that
directory. There is no "lib" at the present time. That is also were I
have the build xml file for ant along with some files for obtaining some
information during the ant build. The output file for the jar is in a
directory in "/tmp" which is later copied to its final location.
