I have an older version

bodewig@bodewig ~/java/tests >java -version
java version "1.3.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0)
Classic VM (build 1.3.0, J2RE 1.3.0 IBM build cx130-20000623 (JIT enabled: jitc))

and it seems to work for me - I don't have a package starting with
com.sun.corba either, neither in tools.jar nor in dt.jar or rt.jar.

The same class is not part of Sun's own JDK 1.3 for Linux either BTW,
there is a package com/sun/corba/se/idl but not

My best guess would be that comand line rmic doesn't use
sun.rmi.rmic.Main. Does "strings JAVA_HOME/bin/exe/rmic | grep Main"
give a result similar to mine?

bodewig@bodewig ~/tmp/rmic >strings /usr/local/java/jdk1.3/bin/exe/rmic | grep Main
Main-Class is '%s'
Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from
