Subject Re: Which javac does ant use in its "javac" task?
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2013 20:40:31 GMT
Without knowing how you are creating the classpath for ant to use, it is 
impossible to say why it is not working for you.  It may be something as 
simple as using the wildcard in a way that has ant expanding it rather 
than it being passed through to javac.
