Subject Using Jikes as compiler for Tomcat 4.1 on Windows systems
Date Fri, 19 Dec 2003 21:40:44 GMT
Simple question. Is it possible or not? I use Jikes 1.18 and Tomcat 4.1.24.

Based from other posts I figured out that it's not possible to configure
Tomcat to use Jikes as JSP compiler because -encoding is not supported in
the Windows version of Jikes.

However out of different posts I get the idea that some people are able to
get it to work.

This is my error message:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

An error occurred at line: -1 in the jsp file: null

Generated servlet error:

	[javac] Compiling 1 source file
	[javac] use: jikes [options] [@files]
	[javac] For more help, try -help or -version
	[javac] Error: The option "-encoding" is unsupported in this build.

Note: 'jikes -help' doesn't show any help information on -encoding, but when
I give the command 'jikes -encoding' an error message is returned that
"-encoding" requires an argument.

This is how I have it configured in my conf/web.xml:


Did I forget anything?
