Subject Re: Need help with jdk1.6.0_11 build
Date Fri, 02 Apr 2010 07:59:41 GMT
JDK 1.6.0u11can be found here:
http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/6u11/index.html

It is possible to run Ant with a particular version of Java (using JAVA_HOME
or other) and then use "fork" in javac to specify an alternative version of
the Java compiler for the build.

The documentation of the javac task shows you how to do this:
