Subject RE: Jikes + weblogic
Date Fri, 18 May 2001 15:04:06 GMT
I already have Jikes 1.14, but the problem still occured. I got a hint,
to create 
an empty .../lib/ext directory, and it worked.

Thanx a lot.

Try upgrading to the latest Jikes version (1.14).  You can find
it at:

[This is from memory -- I fixed the problem and moved on, but...]

Previous versions of Jikes looked for the file iiimp.jar in the
.../jre/lib/ext directory.  I don't know what for.  JDK 1.3+
seems to have eliminated this file.  Jikes 1.14 seems to have
removed this dependency.  To use Jikes 1.13 or less, you can copy
the .../jre/lib/ext/iiimp.jar file to the JDK 1.3+ directory tree
from a previous JDK version and it should work as well.

Try that and see if it helps.
