Hi Keith,

I agree, even this early release of Grouper is very impressive. As
I've played with it for a bit I recognised your classpath problem. To
get it working add the following to your Java CLASSPATH and it should
run fine.


Grouper-lib.jar currently contains all the third party libraries
Grouper uses, not sure I like that idea but it works!

Or if you're feeling really lazy (it is Christmas!) you could just add
the following target to the build.xml file in the csv2subject
directory and it will use the build CLASSPATH. Note you'll have to
change the arguments of the target inside the build.xml file if you
want it to actually do the import.

<target name="run" depends="init">
<java classname="csv2subject"
<path refid="project.class.path"/>
<pathelement path="."/>
<arg value="-h"/>

Happy Christmas All.
