Description Gary Benson 2005-05-26 10:04:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Some of eclipse's bundled ant classes are being picked up by the system ant,
which then fails because the classpath (for system ant) does not contain all the
classes that the (newer) eclipse ant requires.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo '<project/>' > build.xml
2. ant
Actual results:
Buildfile: build.xml

Comment 1 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2005-05-26 10:42:26 EDT
Our eclipse packages create symlinks to the system-installed ant (rather than
bundling their own version of ant).  In M7 eclipse started bundling ant 1.6.4. 
Currently our eclipse packages link to what they think is 1.6.2, which causes
the breakage you're seeing.
Comment 2 Gary Benson 2005-05-26 10:46:43 EDT
How does that work?  org.apache.tools.ant.Executor first appeared in ant-1.6.3:
the code that references it must come from that version of ant, so eclipse must
be bundling it, must it not?

This ought to fix it.  It's going to take some messing about to build it

 1. delete eclipse-3.1.0_fc-0.M7.5 and eclipse-3.1.0_fc-0.M7.7 from dist-fc4
    (to stop the new classes from masking the system ant's)
 2. move java-1.4.2-gcj-compat- out of dist-fc4 temporarily
    and delete java-1.4.2-gcj-compat- entirely
    (so tools.jar is looking in the right place for ecj)
 3. build the new eclipse
 4. move java-1.4.2-gcj-compat- back into dist-fc4.
Comment 5 Gary Benson 2005-05-27 05:15:45 EDT
I can confirm that the combination of eclipse-ecj-3.1.0_fc-0.M7.8 and
java-1.4.2-gcj-compat- works beautifully.
