I believe the split method was added with JDK 1.4.  Your IDE/compiler
may be using 1.4 while the runtime is using 1.3.  Check your JAVA_HOME
and PATH settings.

Once code in 1.4 is compiled much of it could run in a 1.3 runtime
because the bytecode is backward compatible, but it cannot call
previously non-existent methods.  That may explain this behavior.  And
it should bomb on any reference to NIO which was also added with 1.4.
