Janino does not cover the complete Java language [see here for a list  
of missing features: 
janino/Parser.html], and so I would recommend just sticking to the  
Eclipse compiler for everything.

Internally we have converted even the ant build process for our app  
server to always use the Eclipse compiler, simply to get a consistent  
build across all the developer's various machines.  In such a large  
project we have sometimes seen odd bugs in various versions of javac,  
and so it is nice to know that all developers are using the exact  
same compiler.
