Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50781] javac task creates long command line
Date Wed, 28 Dec 2011 07:48:11 GMT

--- Comment #4 from Stefan Bodewig <> 2011-12-28 07:48:11 UTC ---
The reason the code works the way it does is that many implementations of javac
(the code is shared) do not support arbitrary arguments in the response file,
only source files.  IIRC this has been true for Sun's javac until 1.3 or 1.4 as

In order to make use of the patch it has to be guarded by some kind of
conditional that ensures we don't feed additional args to jikes or Microsoft's
jvc.  We may even need an attribute to control it for the JDK's javac as people
may be using older javacs in forked mode.
