If what you mean by "a global classpath" is a classpath available in a
property, which can then be used by any target within the current and any
sub build-files, then you just need to set the classpath as a property. I
use properties files to hold various paths I need, then read them in at
the top of the build-file(s) outside of any target, depending on the
values of other properties.
