Hi Rick,

I tested the patch on Solaris 10 and on Solaris Express Community
Edition snv_77, with JDK 1.4 and JDK 5 installed on their default
locations and JAVA_HOME unset, but both attempts failed because the JDK
1.4 installation is not found.

I think the problem lies in that the Solaris packages install the
different JDK versions to these two locations:


However, j2sdk1.4.2_06 is a symlink to ../j2se and jdk1.5.0_13 is a
symlink to instances/jdk1.5.0, so when the symlinks are followed, they
don't seem to be installed in neighbour directories. Unless you
immediately see how to solve this, I'll take a look at it tomorrow.

When I manually installed the JDKs in neighbour directories under
/usr/local/java and put /usr/local/java/jdk1.5.0/bin first in the PATH,
it worked just fine, though.

I don't think our build system knows about j15lib or
java15compile.classpath. Should we add a note about them in
BUILDING.txt, and also define them in
tools/ant/properties/compilepath.properties? If I understand correctly,
we can't actually build Java 5 code unless we either set those
properties or use the automatic property setting, so we'll have to wait
until those properties are mandatory before we can start using Java 5
code in engine code?
