Subject Re: New Ant GUI - 'Ant's Nest'
Date Thu, 06 Jan 2005 16:51:09 GMT
Hi Luis,

Thanks for the interest but I'm afraid it has to be Java 1.5 or higher. This 
is due to the fact I use a couple of new methods, as well as annotations. 
This is where a user's own Ant task can be marked up with meta-data and 
Ant's Nest will automatically scan the compiled class, integrating it's 
information into the editor.

All the best,
