Subject ant 1.6.5, bsf 2.3.0, rhino 1.6R2 RC2

I'm hitting walls trying to use script tasks with javascript.


* FreeBSD-5.4-RELEASE-p6 i386
* (compiled) native Sun JDK SE 1.4.2_8 FreeBSD patch level 7
* (binary) Apache Ant 1.6.5
* (binary) Apache BSF 2.3.0
* (binary) Mozilla Rhino 1.6 R2 RC2,

I'm seeing these two errors when I try to use javascript scripts:

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.mozilla.javascript.Context.getDebuggableEngine()Lorg/mozilla/javascript/debug/DebuggableEngine;

Looks like I'm not the only one who hasn't gotten this to work: says:

"If you use Apache BSF 2.3.0-rc1, you must use rhino 1.5R3 - later
versions of BSF work with 1.5R4 as well."

but suggests that 1.5R4 cannot
work with 2.3.0 because Rhino dropped the Context.getDebuggableEngine
method between R3 and R4, and, as it turns out, that's precisely the

The text on the Ant install.html page is thus misleading: BSF 2.3.0
(which is later than 2.3.0-RC1) does not work with Rhino 1.5R4 or newer.

Could someone please fix the text?
