I can't sort through the newsgroups and mailing lists on Eclipse's site. It seems like they're more directed at developers for Eclipse. I have usage issues and have been looking for an appropriate place to ask for help, anyone know of one? I just found a yahoo group for it, but looks like the volume and activity there is pretty low.

For example, I keep having issues running Ant from Eclipse - classpath issue, what a surprise. Usually it works fine, but I have 2 issues:

#1 For every new project, I have to keep adding junit.jar to the classpath for each individual project's build.xml. There's got to be some common place to add jars needed at compile-time. Where is it? I've gone to the Windows->Preferences->Ant tabs, but only find runtime classpath entrie.

#2 I also have problems finding xerces classes at runtime, for 3rd party jars/classes I'm using which compile fine but use xerces at runtime. I've tried adding a xerces.jar to the Ant runtime classpath, I've tried adding the jar to my system classpath, nothing works. I've searched eclipse's site on it and find several bug notes about xerces classpath issues, but can't figure out if they're current bugs or what to do about it.

BTW I'm using Eclipse 3.0, which includes Ant 1.6.1.

Thanks

Sorry, I didn't see the Ant and IDE forums above, I will repost there.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
