Hey Matt,

You guys tried going back to 1.4.1 and see if it fixed the problem? Not always the case, but
if it works on 1.4.1, and not on 1.5, then either Ant is the problem (not likely), or something
Ant is doing when invoking ejbc is different. You could check the src of both versions and
see if anything changed.

We ran into this on one of the developers' systems in our shop under the Ant 1.5 upgrade.
I didn't get down in the weeds to find out the exact why's, but found that setting %ANT_HOME%
to the root install of ant (e.g. C:\ant or some such), setting %JAVA_HOME% to the root dir
of the jdk install (e.g. C:\jdk131 or whatever), and then adding %ANT_HOME%\bin and %JAVA_HOME%\bin
to the %PATH% fixed the problem. I'm not sure why Ant 1.4.1 was working without the definition
of these environment variables, I haven't diffed the scripts shipped with the Ant binary distros
of 1.4.1 and 1.5.

Hmmm, odd. If you can replicate it I would suggest running with the -debug 
flag to see what command line is being used. If you can cut and paste that 
onto a command line (you may need to use keepgeneric for that) and see if it 
works from there. As you can see the error is actually occuring in ejbc, not 
ejbjar - so technically not part of Ant. It would be interesting to contrast 
the command line with 1.4 in this case.

I don't think either of these will have an impact since they are not 
involved when Ant invokes java to run ejbc, but worth trying anyway.
