Subject Re: please reccomend a jdk for testing 1.1 compatability on linux
Date Wed, 29 May 2002 16:15:40 GMT
Thanks much for the ANT_OPTS setting. That did the trick. The only 
problem is as soon as I got it compiled, I did test... and you 
guessed it found a test failing under 1.1

AvailableTest dies on test21:

I looked at the xml file for this test and it seems that the classpath 
they have defined assumes that jarfiles are in the ${java.home}/lib 
directory, but the 1.1 from blackdown isn't organized this way. Also 
there are some funky looking absolute paths that don't make any sense to 
me, but I assume they are for some special case I don't appriciate.

This doesn't impact my work, and I don't have time to fix it, but 
someone might want
to look at it.


As food for thought here is the xml bit for test21, the test case simply 
tests that test=="true".

  <target name="test21">
    <available property="test" ignoresystemclasses="true"
        <pathelement location="${java.home}/lib/rt.jar" />
        <pathelement location="${java.home}/lib/classes.jar" />
