Subject Ant Won't Compile Java Programs
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2001 13:08:32 GMT
I just installed ant on my NT 4.0 PC.  I created a simple "build.xml" file
for one of my Java projects.  When I run ant it gives me the following

    [javac] Modern compiler is not available - using classic compiler
    [javac] Compiling 192 source files to D:\vcoj\build


D:\vcoj\build.xml:17: Cannot use classic compiler, as it is not available A
common solution is to set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to your jdk

I have my JAVA_HOME set to "d:\jdk1.3".  I can type "JAVA_HOME\bin\javac" at
the command prompt within my project directory and the Java compiler runs
just fine.  I can also simply type "javac" at the command prompt and run the
compiler.  What is ant's problem?  Why does it think my compiler is not
