Subject One more for Javac: compiler or implementation
Date Fri, 22 Mar 2002 11:28:59 GMT
Yet another thing with regard to Javac that maybe should get a fix
that breaks backwards compatibility to unreleased versions.

<javac> has an attribute to override build.compiler named compiler.
It also has a nested <compilerarg> element that you can use to specify
command line switches that are only useful if you are using a specific
compiler implementation - here the compiler implementation is chosen
by the implementation attribute.

Wouldn't it be better if both attributes had the same name?

Which one? compiler, implementation or something completely different?

My votes goes for "make them consistent" with no strong opinion on the
name, but a slight bias towards implementation.
