Subject Re: Can't get Ant to bootstrap

Hi Berin,

It happened to me once. I defined my JAVA_HOME variable to some directory which was
only a symbolic link to jdk1.2 directory. When I changed JAV_HOME to actual
directory which had jdk1.2, it started working.

If you are using symbolic links, try this approach. May be ant does not like
symbolic links.
