Subject Re: Problems with building Derby

Yes, I got this problem too, and it took me most of a day to figure it 

Are you on XP?  If so, make sure in your ant.properties file you escape 
the colons and the backslashes, e.g. C\:\\my\\directory\\to\\files

That said, this has worked for others, but it didn't do squat for me. 
What I finally had to do was to move (or copy) the JDK 1.4 and JDK 1.3 
folders to <derby_root>/jdk141 and <derby_root>/jdk141.  After much 
painful inspecting of the build scripts I determined this was the 
default location the scripts were using and no matter how hard I tried I 
couldn't get the scripts to listen to me and look elsewhere.

Once I did this the build worked like a charm.
