RE: [platform-ant-dev] Compiler Problem


Question for both Mark and Dave, are you running on a real JDK or just a JRE?  The theory is that the tools.jar (which contains the javac code) is not ending up on the class path.  The only real issue I can imagine is that you are running a JRE and JRE's don't come with tools.jar.  Can you confirm?

As you've noted, if you use the workaround then the ant scripts don't work outside Eclipse.    You should on ly have to set the build.compile property if you explicitly want to use the Eclipse (JDT) compiler.

I don't think so, I had the same problem and found the
answer on the newsgroup. I believe it has something to
do with JAVA_HOME.

I'm just a user, or am I since this is Open Source!

Yeeha! Thanks mark that fixed the problem!

BTW is this documented somewhere?  It would be nice if it worked without
amending the build script so that it works in and outside eclipse.

Thanks again,

Dave
