As Niels Verdonk pointed out, you can use the compiler attribute of
<ejbjar>. I thought I'd also let you know that in 1.4, <ejbjar> will
automatcially check if build.compiler is set to Jikes and use Jikes if it
is. You can turn off this behaviour.

I am on this list (not sure how you could have missed me :-), but I haven't
heard from Tim in a long while.
