Subject jakarta ant 1.4.1/1.5 ant script
Date Thu, 25 Apr 2002 14:19:44 GMT

I'm taking a look at the ant script in cvs to prepare
the 1.5 rpm and be the closer with jpackage.

ant script tried to locate 	all jars into $ANT_HOME/lib
(jaxp/parser/ant and optional).

The rpm set ANT_HOME to /usr (to have ant find antRun ($ANT_HOME/bin/antRun).
So the current script will search into /usr/lib for jars to be added to 
classpath (ie jakarta-ant-optional.jar) 

With the rpm layout, optional.jar is installed into /usr/share/java,
next to ant.jar and other jars like xerces/xalan.

- Did some use to put others jars into $ANT_HOME/lib or it's
  just to get ant/jaxp/parser ? 

- jpackage use a supplementary rpm containing optional.jar, I'd like
  to do the same.

- What about adding a RPM_MODE var in script which will be tested to
  determine if the script is in normal ant mode or in rpm/fhs mode
  and thus avoid patching the ant from cvs ?
