The last 'stable' release of ANT doesn't work with JDK 1.3 - no object files
are produced. However in the latest code in CVS it degrades to a classic
compile which is better!

I have got it working now by forcing a classic compile by setting the
'build.compiler' property - I will try the patch (sent by Michael Smith) to
implement the modern compile and see how it goes !!

Thanks for your help!
