Subject Re: jdk 1.4 classic

good idea!  just tried it and unfortunately, i get this when i use 
"modern" or "javac1.4":

[javac] Modern compiler is not available - using classic compiler

BUILD FAILED
t:\config\Build.xml:53: Cannot use classic compiler, as it is not available 
A common solution is to set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to your jdk
directory.

it kindof looks like the problem is that the taskdefs.compilers package
doesn't yet have a Javac14.java file yet.  

hmmm... 

so i just figured out a workaround... by setting fork=true on javac, it 
works.  this must mean that the use of the "internal" compiler (within 
the same vm) isn't yet supported for jdk 1.4.  which is fine... although
rough on those of us who have slow machines... but it would be nice if it
were documented somewhere more prominently.  a nice big red "Note: ..."
at the top of the javac taskdef would be perfect until internal compiling
is supported on jdk 1.4.
