Subject Does ant 1.8.0 compile on Solaris 10 SPARC?
Date Mon, 29 Mar 2010 13:17:09 GMT
Has anyone successfully built ant 1.8.0 on Solaris 10 SPARC (u4,
sun4u)?  I actually wanted to compile the latest Tomcat on a server on
a private network, but building Tomcat requires ant >= 1.6 and the ant
that comes with Solaris 10 is 1.5.4, so I downloaded the ant 1.8
source and moved it over but get 51 errors from  I thought
perhaps it was due to the Java 1.5.0 JDK on that server so I installed
the latest 1.6 JDK but get the same errors.  JAVA_HOME is set.  Am I
missing some libraries?  I just want to get Tomcat compiled so I know
little about ant and have never had to try to build it before.  I also
tried the script which yields the same errors.  Thanks in
advance and I apologize if this is not the correct forum for this

I won't include all 51 errors (available if it would help) but here
are the first and last two.:
