Subject Building with JDK 1.6 (was Re: Javadoc lies)
Date Mon, 01 May 2006 18:00:13 GMT
This is great news (for how we build with JDK 1.6, not the javadoc :( ), 
I didn't know if this was completed.  Thanks, Andrew!

Should those of working with JDK 1.6 start using the JAVA_HOME technique 
rather than the ant.properties technique?  Has BUILDING.txt been changed?

Thanks,

David
