in fact eclipse wont let me edit this library (its not a user library)
where is the library defn maintained - is it in eclipse somewhere? is it JBOSS tools ?
in order to test without this library - what jboss libraries do i need (i'll have to create a user librrary and put my own libs in) and take out the server runtime library altogether.
is all i need client.jar, and client-all.jar?
whos bug is this ? is it JBOSS tools project?
Yes, from what you described it's a jboss tools problem.
However I've created an issue so we can investigate. In the meantime you could look at the sample build.xml that ships with the distribution. It contains the complete client classpath reference.
