Subject [PATCH] Ant 1.4 bug fix
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2001 17:33:27 GMT

I would like to submit the attached patch to the file of
the Ant 1.4 release:

The attached patch fixes a bug I found when running on Solaris.
Specifically, the bug is that all "-D" arguments that are to be used by
ant need to follow the ant classname argument. The original
has the "-Dant.home=." argument preceding the ant classname. Hence, the
"ant.home" property gets set as a System property by the JVM instead of
being passed as an argument to the class.

Without this patch, the bootstrap of Ant 1.4 will always fail on Solaris
and, I assume, on most other Unix platforms.
