I have had error messages provided frequently (unfortunately :) when I have
used Jikes and have no trouble using the CVS tasks - after my initial climb
up the learning curve - using JDK 1.2.2.

Spent the day struggling with the following ANT issues:

1. Whenever I tried to use jikes as a compiler, ant would myseriously
cack saying, "Error messages should have been provided." ... and yet no
error messages were provided, even in verbose mode.

2. It seemed that, even though I had the latest version of ANT, it
completely ignored the CVS task.

Turned out both issues were caused by my java SDK version:  JAVA_HOME
being "jdk1.2.2" instead of "jdk1.3.1" or "jdk1.3.2";

So here's a resounding, "ANT NEEDS JDK1.3.x OR HIGHER!!!"
