Subject Re: Ant on Mac OS 9?
Date Sat, 14 Jul 2001 13:59:39 GMT
However, the future of ant on Mac OS 9 is limited.  The JDK for Mac OS 9 is
limited to 1.1.8, and neither Sun nor Apple have any intention of getting
Java2 running on 9.  On the bright side, however, Mac OS X has a Java2 vm
and developer tools.  Tell them to buy a new G4. :)
