Subject Cannot bootstrap on JDK 1.1 any longer
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2002 09:42:27 GMT

since has been changed to stop if command line javac
fails, it is impossible to bootstrap with JDK 1.1 - the reason is
NoExitSecurityManager which cannot be compiled for lack of

Unlike all other classes that cannot be compiled with JDK 1.1, this
class is not outside the "plain" Ant tree.

What do we want to do here?  Options I see but don't like are changing
${TOOLS}/ant/*.java to explicitly list all files except
NoExitSecurityManager (not feasible IMHO) or changing to
ignore compilation errors as it did before.

The other option I see is moving NoExitSecurityManager somewhere where
bootstrap doesn't pick it up - but it has been at its place for seven
weeks now, so I'm not sure we can move it ;-)  Seriously, any problems
with moving it?
