Subject Ant requiring tools.jar / SUN compiler tools
Date Thu, 26 Feb 2004 13:56:54 GMT

In org/apache/tools/ant/launch/, the comment
for getToolsJar() states:

 * Get the File necessary to load the Sun compiler tools. (...)

... and then tries to either load the compiler classes or find 
tools.jar in the system.

Does this mean that ant can't run without an implementation of the* classes? Do you know if there is a free (cleanroom)
implementation of these classes available? Are the classes also needed
when I only want to use gcj as build.compiler?

Any information appreciated - thanks,
