Subject Re: [JAVA] build breakage with older ant/java
Date Wed, 17 Aug 2011 19:21:15 GMT
I fixed the build breakage on Saturday when committing something else,
so you dont need to worry about that now.

The issue below is due to the somewhat ancient version of Ant you are
using; a commit some weeks ago has used an attribute not supported
until Ant 1.7.1, released in June 2008.

You say you cant update, but is that really the case? All that is
required to update Ant would be to unpack the ~6+ MB binary (e.g. from
http://www.apache.org/dist/ant/binaries/ ) and add the bin directory
to your path, job done. The alternative would be to rework the
additions to support 1.6.5, but at over 6 years old I think its time
we gave up on that and take advantage of the bug fixes and newer
features in later releases (theres a few I've spotted in 1.8.X that I
look forward to using at some point down the line, once its suitably
