Description of problem:
eclipse 3.1 ships with a plugin for ant at 1.6.5.  However, after some
investigation I realize that all the libraries in this plugin symlink over to
/usr/share/java/ant which is part of the ant-1.6.2-3jpp_14fc package. Ant 1.6.2
contains bugs (bug 167431) that cause problems with user defined ant tasks.

It would be nice if the ant version the plugin claims to be was really the ant
version that was run.  I see the advantage of having eclipse use the rpm ant. I
would perfer that both the native ant was at 1.6.5 (bug 167431) that way
fedora's eclipse wouldn't have a backrev'ed ant compared to the released eclipse
version.  Alternativly or perhaps additionally, the ant version the system and
eclipse uses could be under the alternatives system (bug 167432) so that the
system administrator could install alternative versions that eclipse would obey.

Additional info:
The work around is to intall a newer version of ant and set the ant home in the
windows-preferences-ant-runtime to it.

Interesting idea.

In the mean time, I don't want to un-symlink-ify (nice English) the ant jars
within Eclipse 'cause I'm happy that we've gotten it to where it is now with no

I'm going to CC myself on the other bug but close this one since it directly
relates to the system ant (which I believe Vadim/Gary is planning on updating RSN).
