Yes, you are right, for some reason I was thinking the catalog files 
went in the java dir.

Actually, it already is optional.

The projectInfo plugin, for example, does not have a java dir.

The line referenced by Thorsten above is the one that compiles the java 
classes and should only be executed if the property "java_exists" has 
been set.

So, Thorsten, it shouldn't fail. I have no suggestions as to why it is 
doing so. What are you doing that is "non-standard".
