|Re: [eclipselink-dev] Question about external dependencies.
Hi Eric,At the moment, I just define oracle.extensions.depend.dir. I am not sure about the extension.lib.external or extension.oracle.lib.external directories.
One thing that is important to keep in mind is that JDBC jar location will need to be set both by people using Oracle and by people using other DBs.

All,Until recently I didn't use the "extension.lib.external" or "extension.oracle.lib.external" directories. I am curious why we need two. I'd think that the oracle jdbc drivers and all other external dependencies are named differently than each other.Wouldn't a single directory be more efficient?Also wouldn't defining a variable "extensions.depend.dir" make more sense that a plethora of explicit library definitions?jdbc=../extension.lib.external/jdbc.jar junit=../extension.lib.external/junit.jar ....That way the minimum redefinition would be a single value (extensions.depend.dir), unless someone chooses to store them separately thus requiring a redefinition of all the external dependency library values.Thanks -Eric _______________________________________________ eclipselink-dev mailing list eclipselink-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/eclipselink-dev
