jsp compilation with jikes fails





------- Additional Comments From hoju@visi.com  2002-10-08 04:46 -------
I'm trying to use jikes-1.17 under windows and it has the same issue.  No -
encoding option.  However, there are already bugs reported on this on the jikes 
site.

See:

http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/bugs/?
func=detailbug&bug_id=2645&group_id=10

and 

http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/bugs/?
func=detailbug&bug_id=2889&group_id=10

and

http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/bugs/?
func=detailbug&bug_id=2963&group_id=10


Looks like the solution is here:

<quotes frombug="2889">

There is no iconv support under Windows and the ICU support 
requires ICU so you would need to build it yourself. I don't see any way to 
build a Windows version that supports -encoding. Oh, also there are cross 
compile problems since 
we could not detect iconv support even if it existed. 

It seems like fixing the docs to mention that this option 
is not available on all systems is the way to go.

This is because Windows does not support encoding transformations by default, 
and we don't want to ship a secondary .dll to accompany Jikes. If you want 
encoding, you must download the iconv package, build it, then build Jikes 
yourself. Or else write your own decoder and contribute it as a patch.

So, if someone took their advice and did a custom compile of jikes to enable 
the -encoding option and provided it to the Tomcat community, our problems 
would be solved.  Anyone have the knowledge and time to do this?
