Subject Re: Difficulty using jikes with large source tree
Date Mon, 09 Oct 2000 20:47:22 GMT
Ant is finding jikes in the path because it works fine for a smaller source
tree.  As it turns out javac also fails with OutOfMemoryError when I try to
build the whole tree at once.   I suppose I'll have to break the projects into
smaller target trees.

Verify you have jikes.exe in your PATH.

Also note: If you are running Ant itself with a JVM less than 1.2+, you
will likely get a DOS window popping up for the compile (don't think it
hurts anything -- it's just dang goofy.)

P.S. 722 files sounds pretty small to me. :)
