well the EJB extensions did need to go into Ant, because of the way it
stands; Jythonc doesnt, so we were pushing back. As I said in the

are in Batik. So Jython stuff should go in the Jython jars.

no. because I dont think any of the servers have CPU power to burn on EJB,

Better yet, the junit community plug-in place, with seamless integration
with the IDE.

I think someone bought for some central repository about 15
months ago, but dunno if that is still owned.
