First, GCJ compiles java to .class like jikes or gcj. It can
generate native code as well - with the right options, but 
works as a normal java compiler.

On the other side it has problems with inner classes - and won't
compile all jakarta without code changes.

Jikes is fast - but the recent versions seem to have some problems
with the produced code. I think it would be safer to use javac
for ant ( but keep jikes as the default for JSPs please :-)
