Subject JShell, ant and jlink
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2000 02:01:52 GMT

It appears that I'm travelling down some paths that you've already 
tread.  I just signed up on ant-dev and was pleased to find you 
there.  JShell is looking more and more attractive, and I'm 
considering moving over to using it, chiefly because of the tools 
that can be run there.  I have a few questions.

(1)  Have you successfully been using ant in JShell?  Are there some 
pointers that you could give me for setting that up?  (No ant command 
is included in the distribution of JShell that I have.)

(2) I'm looking for a tool that will merge the contents of a 
"library" jar file with .class files that I want to put into a jar. 
Will jlink do this?  Where can I find some details on jlink?
