                          <p>In many ways Ant2 needs to follow rules similar to a number of 
  different application servers with respect to ClassLoader management. 
  Ant2 will create a number of different ClassLoaders that have access 
  to different sets of resources (and thus Classes). The main reason
  for this arrangment is to partition different sections of the 
  application such as the Container, the Task API, task/type libraries 
  and support libraries.</p>
                                  <p>The recomended structure for ClassLoader relationships is a hierarchy.
  When a ClassLoader is asked for a resource (or a class) it first delegates
  to it's parent to ask for the resource. If the resource is not present in 
  its parent ClassLoader then the ClassLoader attempts to locate the resource
  in it's own store. In practice this means that all the classes (and static 
  variables defined by said classes) in a parent ClassLoader are shared with 
  the child ClassLoaders.</p>
                                  <p>Using kooky ascii art, the specific ClassLoader structure for Ant2 is as 
  follows:</p>

                                  <ul>
    <li>
      The <strong>Bootstrap</strong> ClassLoader contains the classes and resources 
      provided by the Java runtime.
    </li>
    <li>
      The <strong>System</strong> ClassLoader contains the classes that were made accessible 
      via the CLASSPATH environment variable. If the standard ant script was used then this 
      should only contain the classes that are used to bootstrap the ant runtime. ie 
      <code>$ANT_HOME/bin/ant-launcher.jar</code>
    </li>
    <li>
      The <strong>Common</strong> ClassLoader contains the classes and resources 
      that are made visible to both the Container and to all the ant type librarys. This 
      contains all the classes that the Container uses to communicate with tasks and other
      supporting infrastructure. In particular it contains the following APIs;
      <ul>
        <li>
          <em>Task API</em> - Contains the classes that are part of the API used
          to define tasks.
        </li>
        <li>
          <em>ProjectListener API</em> - Contains the classes necessary to define new 
          ProjectListeners.
        </li>
        <li>
          <em>Aspect API</em> - Contains the classes that are used to define Aspects 
          of the container.
        </li>
        <li>
          <em>Container API</em> - Contains the interfaces that are required to communicate
          with the objects deep within the container. <strong>NOTE</strong>: These interfaces
          are not to be used by user tasks but are made available so that certain tasks (such 
          as &lt;antcall/&gt;) can be implemented. However they are subject to change without 
          notice between between different ant2 versions.
        </li>
      </ul>
      <p>
        These classes are loaded from all the jars present in the <code>$ANT_HOME/lib</code>
        directory. 
      </p>
    </li>
    <li>
      The <strong>Container</strong> ClassLoader contains all the classes and resources
      that are part of the actual implementation of the Container. These classes are not
      directly accessible to any Ant library or task. Some of the classes are indirectly 
      accessible to tasks and other elements defined in the ant librarys as they implement 
      interfaces defined in the <strong>Common</strong> ClassLoader. The classes that are 
      stored in jars in the <code>$ANT_HOME/bin/lib/</code> directory.
    </li>
    <li>
      The <strong>Shared</strong> ClassLoader contains all the classes and resources
      that are shared across all of the ant librarys (unless they are als needed by the
      container in which case they should be placed int the <strong>Container</strong> 
      ClassLoader). This ClassLoader is populated by all the jars that are contained in
      the <code>$ANT_HOME/shared/</code> directory.
    </li>
    <li>
      The <strong>AntLib</strong> ClassLoaders each contain the classes and resources
      that required by that particular library. Note that in some cases a single Ant 
      Library will manifest as a single ClassLoader containing a single jar. However 
      in some cases it is possible for one Ant Library to have multiple jars in its 
      ClassLoader or even have multiple ClassLoaders. See XXXX for further details.

                  Firstly, there is more than one type of file set.  Secondly, they are VFS enabled.
                  File sets are automatically converted to a <a href="#Paths">path</a>, and so
                  can be used anywhere that a path can.</p>
                                  <h3><code>&lt;v-fileset&gt;</code></h3>
                                  <p>This is the equivalent of Ant 1's <code>&lt;fileset&gt;</code> (The name
                  is temporary, it will be changed to <code>&lt;fileset&gt;</code> once more
                  porting work as been completed).</p>
                                  <p>Rather than use a set of include and exclude patterns to choose the files
                  that make up the file set, <code>&lt;v-fileset&gt;</code> takes zero or more
                  <a href="#File Selectors">file selectors</a>.  File selectors can be used to
                  select files based on any attribute of the file, rather than just the name.
                  You can use <code>&lt;name&gt;</code> selectors to achieve the same result
                  as using includes or excludes.</p>
                                  <p>A <code>&lt;v-fileset&gt;</code> element takes the following attributes:</p>

                          <p>Long ago there was identified the need for librarys that contain
  tasks and other elements present in the build file. This document
  attempts to describe the mechanism via which these libraries will be
  defined and used in Ant2. The librarys (also referred to as
  deployments) will be termed antlibs.</p>
                                  <p>Ant librarys can be packaged and signed into a ANt Type Library
  format (.atl) using the standard Java Archive tools. (For details on
  the .jar file format see the
  <a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/jar/index.html">
  Jar Specification</a>.</p>
                                  <p>When packaged into such a form the META-INF/ directory contains
  ant specific descriptors in addition to the standard Jar manifest
  and other descriptor files. The archive will also contain the
  <code>.class</code> files for all the tasks and other types the
  library defines. It may also contain additional resources that can
  be referenced in the build file (an example being DTDs).</p>
                                  <p>The library may also need access to other librarys or resources
  to perform its job. For instance, if the task loaded an XML document
  and then processed said document using the <em>Trax API</em> then
  the Ant library needs to have access to the <em>Trax API</em> and an
  implementation of the API. The Antlib mechanism thus uses the standard
  "Optional Package" Specification to declare dependencies on other
  libraries.</p>
                                  <p>The libraries will usually be installed in standard locations that
  make it possible for the Ant container to automatically locate and scan
  the libraries. It will also be possible for the users to specify
  additional search locations or even the specific location of ant
  libraries.</p>
                                  <p>The following sections will describe each of these different facets
  in greater detail.</p>

                          <p>It is often the case that a library will need external resources. The
  example given above described dependence on an external XML library. The
  ant library thus needs a mechanism via which to declare dependencies on
  external libraries.</p>
                                  <p>Ant2 uses the "Optional Package" mechanism. Prior to JDK1.3, an "Optional
  Package" was known as an <em>Extension</em>. The specification for this
  mechanism is available in the JDK1.3 documentation in the directory
  <code>$JDK_HOME/docs/guide/extensions/versioning.html</code>. Alternatively
  it is available online at
  <a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/extensions/versioning.html">
  http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/extensions/versioning.html</a>.</p>
                                  <p>This mechanism was adopted as it is an established standard. The standard
  is also begining to be adopted by other specifications such as the <em>Servlet
  2.3 API</em>. Thus we are likely to see an increase of jars using this mechanism
  to specify dependencies.</p>
                                  <p>The "Optional Package" mechanism allows jars to specify dependencies on other
  jars that implement a particular specification at particular version levels. For
  example you could specify a dependency on the Trax 1.1 API by adding the following
  to the manifest of your jar.</p>

  to implementing specification will be different.</p>
                                  <p>In the current architecture all of the "Optional Packages" are assumed to
  be stored in the <code>$ANT_HOME/ext</code> directory. The runtime will scan
  this directory for jars and add all the "optional Packages" found into a
  registry. This registry will be used by the library loading mechanism to locate
  all the "Optional Packages". The user is able to specify an alternative directory
  or add a new directory to search on the commandline.</p>
                                  <p>When the container attempts to load an ant library it will also try to load
  any needed dependencies. First it will check the parent ClassLoaders to see if any
  of them contain the required dependencies. If not then it will search the
  "Optional Packages" registry. If the dependency is not found then a error will be
  signaled. If the dependency is found in the "Optional Packages" registry then it is
  loaded by the same ClassLoader that is used to load the Ant library.</p>
