Subject Re: Ant w/ Java 1.2.2

Hi Josh, 

Rebuild your ANT distro with jikes.  It should work when recompiled with
modern compiler from JDK 1.3, and it might work with javac compiler from
JDK 1.2.2, but it will for sure work correctly with the recent jikes.
This is a known problem with javac compiler from previous JDKs. 
(From my own experiences with my own inner classes, the only compiler
 which does not contain bugs in this area on Linux apart from jikes is the
 modern compiler from JDK 1.3)
Once you build ANT with decent compiler, you will have no problems using
it even with JDK 1.1.*
