Its pasted into the bottom of the original message in this thread
earlier today. However there may be no need, see below....

And there lies the clue!

Despite having set default java to either 1.5 or 1.6, despite setting
JAVA_HOME to point to 1.5 or 1.6, it still compiled using 1.4 due to the
fact that the build.compiler.vm was still set at 1.4 !!

I have now brought my local copy back up to trunk:HEAD, changed the
setting to 1.5, changed the JAVA_HOME to 1.5 and Dispatcher now works
fine on Windows and Linux !!

(Have others tried that and had success/failure)

Looking at the Forrest Zone at

http://forrest.zones.apache.org/ft/build/forrest-sample-2/

it is clearly not using Dispatcher.

I also tested in 1.6 and get the following compile errors:

compile:
Created dir: /home/gmcdonald/asf/forrest/build/classes
Compiling 33 source files to /home/gmcdonald/asf/forrest/build/classes

2 errors

So, getting closer to having 1.6 work too.

If others can test, and it is as simple as upping the build.compiler.vm
setting, then I say we should do it right now, but others may have other
views.

As we are still in the 0.X range of release versions, then if we can fix
the above UTF8 problem I'd be happy to go straight to 1.6


Thanks for looking into it.
