Subject RE: jikes and Ant vs. javac 1.3
Date Fri, 16 Feb 2001 00:42:49 GMT
That's a big one, thanks.  Perhaps I just need to figure out a way to
structure my build script so that I can easily switch between Jikes and
Javac.  Does anyone have any insight on this?

A potential problem that may or may not impact you is Jikes's integration
with JPDA.  If you compile your code with Jikes, you will not be able to
debug your code using JPDA-compatible debuggers.  In general, if you use
debuggers, Jikes has been known to cause problems.  This is listed as one of
the known issues/bugs but no one seems to know of a way to fix it.

code has 
been runing on the production site for the past month and we have had no

Subject: jikes and Ant vs. javac 1.3 

	Hi folks - 

	I was thinking about switching to jikes for my builds.  My team is
using jdk1.3 (javac). 

	I was wondering if anyone knew of any potential pitfalls I can be
aware of 
(either with Ant or jikes itself) before making the switch. 

	Also, besides the speed increase, what else can I expect from jikes.
think it has better dependency checking, if I'm not mistaken. 

	Any advice would be appreciated.
