Subject Accessing manifest info through AntClassLoader
Date Thu, 18 Jul 2002 17:55:20 GMT

With a future version of my Java Source Code Formatter (this Jalopy
thingy) I plan to introduce a branding mechanism to allow compatibility
checking between the Plug-in and core runtime API versions.

It seems to me that the natural choice for such a task would be the
build-in Java versioning support (Jalopy needs Java 1.3 or later). As
Ant 2.0 will require JDK 1.2, I would suggest that
will be extended to expose the Manifest information of the .jars it

If you can agree with me regarding this issue, I can submit a modified
version that works for my purposes. The changes are fairly minimal but
obviously requires at least JDK 1.2.
