Hi all,
i'm trying to get junit to work with ant 1.6. Obviously a few things have changed. I managed to get it working but I have doubts on the way it is accomplished. What I understood from the doc is that I should shove the optional.jar and the junit.jar on the classpath. I tried that and there is no optional.jar anymore so I used the ant-junit.jar and the junit.jar. I made sure they were both on the classpath. No Luck.
After that I edited the run.bat file so the ant-junit.jar and junit.jar were explicitely put on the -classpath argument of java cmd. No luck!
junit was still not recognized, than I put the
<taskdef name="junit" classname="">
first without a classpath entry: No Luck,
than with a classpath entry:
<classpath refid="ant.path"/> (ant.path being a path element with jawhich yields another error:
A class needed by class cannot be found: org/apache/tools/ant/Task
I also put the ant.jar entry hardcode on the classpath argument of the JVM.
than it started complaining on the commons-logging.
Which I will also be able to get to work, probably. Now my question: Am I overlooking something, or is this the preferred way to get it working?
ANT_HOME is set, JAVA_HOME is set. (jvm 1.4.2).
thanks in advance

I'll move this to the Ant forum -- you're likely to get better answers there since this is mainly an "Ant 1.6" question

My ANT_HOME environment variable is set to C:\apache-ant-1.6.1
My JUNIT_HOME environment variable is set to C:\junit3.8.1
My CLASSPATH includes %ANT_HOME%\lib\ant.jar;%JUNIT_HOME%\junit.jar
My PATH includes %ANT_HOME%\bin

I am able to run JUnit in Ant with these settings.
