 Modifying the Java Build Compiler
-When compiling the Java source files the top-level Ant script calls another
-Ant script, <EXTRACT_DIR>/modules/build.xml. By opening up this Ant 
-file for editing and making a small change to the "build.compiler" property
-declared near the top of the file it is possible to specify any Java compiler of
-choice - provided it is capable of handling Java 1.5 source code. For example,
-to use the JDT compiler built into Eclipse this property should be changed to
-use the Eclipse compiler adapter ...
+By default, the Java compiler is set to use the ECJ compiler. This value is
+set in the HARMONY_TRUNK/make/properties.xml and looks like the following XML
 <property name="build.compiler" value="org.eclipse.jdt.core.JDTCompilerAdapter" />
-So that Ant can actually locate this Eclipse compiler adapter during a build, 
-the location of the supporting JAR files in the Eclipse distribution need to be
-appended to the CLASSPATH environment variable. For an Eclipse 3.1 distribution
-this amounts to adding <ECLIPSE_INSTALL>/plugins/org.eclipse.jdt.core_3.1.0.jar
-together with the jdtCompilerAdapter.jar it contains. 
-Remember that the Java source files located under
-<EXTRACT_DIR>/modules are intended for consumption by a compiler that
-understands Java 1.5 source code.
-For further information on this topic please refer to the Eclipse batch compiler
-website, the Ant documentation for the "javac" task and to the Eclipse help system
+The compiler can be set to "modern", as per the Ant manual, which will cause Ant
+to use the JDK's 'javac' tool.
+Options for ECJ compiler
+For more information on configuring the ECJ, check out this document on the batch
+compiler - http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/*checkout*/jdt-core-home/howto/batch%20compile/batchCompile.html?rev=HEAD&content-type=text/html.
