I've been trying to unit test a massive code base that contains copious amounts of static methods, and found jmockit to be very useful for this. I've run into a problem where if I try to run the ant build.xml from within eclipse I am told that there is no agent jar, so the advanced features of jmockit cannot be used.

I have tried putting the javaagent parameter in the vmargs that ant uses in junit tests to no avail.

I see no documentation that addresses this particular issue with the combination of ant and eclipse.

Anyone have any clues? Do I need to specify the vmargs somewhere else?

Thanks for your time,
