+ |                              DESCRIPTION                                   |
+ When using the rmic task on an inner class, the task generates errors
+ the first time it is run.  If run a second time when the generated files from
+ the first attempt are present, it succeeds.  Using rmic from a batch file is
+ successful every time.
+ This happens with jdk 1.2.2 on Windows NT 4.0 SP6.  Other platforms not tested.
+ 
+ The errors do not halt the build; it will continue on to the next task if there 
+ is one, or will report BUILD SUCCESSFUL if it is the last task.
+ 
+ The errors come from an improperly generated *_Skel.java file, in which the name 
+ of the inner class is of the form "OuterClass. InnerClass" (note the space) 
+ instead of "OuterClass$InnerClass".  This error doesn't happen on the second or
+ subsequent runs when generated files from the first attempt are present.
+ I would attribute this to a bug in rmic, except that it works fine from a batch 
+ file.  (Of course, it could still be a bug in rmic that only shows up when 
+ invoked as ant does it.)
+ 
+ A workaround is to specify stubversion="1.2" which avoids generation of the Skel 
+ class in the first place.
+ 
+ The rmic task runs every time because it looks for the file 
+ OuterClass\InnerClass_Stub.class instead of OuterClass$InnerClass_Stub.class,
+ even when the classname attribute is "OuterClass\$InnerClass" instead of
+ "OuterClass.InnerClass".
