RE: [eclipselink-dev] Question about external dependencies.

	A refactoring sounds good, some of this structure is historical but it is still usefull for jar separation.
	We will also need to accomidate Eclipse IDE developers in any Ant oriented changes.
	The following Wiki pages will need to be reviewed, run and modified to reflect any changes.

To* new toplevel page required

	If streamlining changes are done, we will need to run through build/development scenarios for the following while updating the sites above.
		1) building with Ant
		2) building with Eclipse 3.4

	I also use the dir for all ant and eclipse variables.
	- Ant
	- Eclipse (as an Eclipse project)

	As for extension.lib.external, i only use it to define a non-Oracle database like the following

	thanks for checking this out

Hi Eric,

   At the moment, I just define oracle.extensions.depend.dir.  I am not sure 
about the extension.lib.external or 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.
