Subject Re: Does ant 1.8.0 compile on Solaris 10 SPARC?
Date Wed, 31 Mar 2010 15:44:39 GMT
Thanks.  That is what I did.  I downloaded the latest ant source.  I
just tried the build the basic ant without any auxiliary jars.  All I
need ant for at this point is compiling Apache Tomcat, but when I try
to build ant I get those errors I reported.  51 of them total.  I've
tried it with both JDK 1.5 and the latest JDK 1.6.

Sounds like ant simply won't build on Solaris 10 SPARC?
