Everything is possible -- probable is what you have to watch out for. :)

The built-in java-compiling task, <javac>, handles Sun's javac and the
indie-compiler jikes -- so you'd need to write some in-house stuff to deal
with your in-house compiler (either modify, or do some of that
tricky "extends" stuff that I'm not all that up on just yet :)

Hope this helps,
