Bryan Pendleton created DERBY-6916:

             Summary: Doc of derbyrun.jar should describe complete list of 
referenced jars
                 Key: DERBY-6916
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Bryan Pendleton
            Priority: Minor

As I read our build.xml file:
<manifest file="$
Unknown macro: {derby.jar.dir}
<attribute name="Main-Class" value=""/>
<attribute name="Class-Path" value="derby.jar derbyclient.jar derbytools.j
ar derbynet.jar derbyoptionaltools.jar"/>
the derbyrun.jar filepulls both derbytools.jar and derbyoptionaltools.jar into 
my classpath.

This means that both regular tools and optional tools can be run using only 
derbyrun.jar in the classpath.

I think this indicates that this documentation is incorrect:

because it seemed to me to quite explicitly say that derbyrun.jar includes 
*ONLY* derby.jar, derbynet.jar, and derbyclient.jar.

We should review that doc, and also any other doc that references derbyrun.jar, 
to make sure it is clear what it references and how to use it.
