I know this is a very basic question, but I will appreciate anyone steering me in the right direction. I have been going along working with Forte and then Tomcat and then with j2sdkee1.3.1. All the while my SYSTEM CLASSPATH is getting out of hand. I'm running on Windows2000. Trying to build the examples for j2sdkee1.3.1 tutorial, I finally realized I need to add ant.jar to this already too long CLASSPATH.
Is it going to cause a lot of unanticipated issues if I shorten the directory names used for the tomcat jar files?
I knew about but had just forgotten about the 128 character limit for Windows.
Does anyone have some advice for using batch files to augment a basic CLASSPATH?

I agree. Here's the link:
