Subject Re: AW: ant-contrib with Java 1.4?
Date Wed, 27 May 2009 15:32:36 GMT
I  know that Java 1.4 had a lot of bugs that had to be fixed -- hence
the later versions of Java 1.4 like Java 1.4.2.

It could just be that you hit one of the Java 1.4 bugs. Can you
upgrade to Java 1.4.2? Or, at least compile in Java 1.4.2 since the
bytecode produced by Java 1.4.2 should be identical to Java 1.4
format?

Java 1.4 was released in February 2002 and Java 1.4.2 was released in
August of 2003 fixing many of the bugs in Java 1.4. Both are now
obsolete and are no longer supported by Sun as of October 2008.
