Subject RE: jikes and Ant vs. javac 1.3
Date Thu, 15 Feb 2001 20:51:11 GMT
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.
