Method Detail


public boolean execute()
                throws BuildException
Performs a compile using the Jikes compiler from IBM. Mostly of this code is identical to doClassicCompile() However, it does not support all options like extdirs, deprecation and so on, because there is no option in jikes and I don't understand what they should do. It has been successfully tested with jikes >1.10.

true if the compilation succeeded
BuildException - on error
