Greetings from beautiful Sandy Springs, Georgia.
I would like to use IBM's jikes compiler with ANT, but don't know how to set up my build.xml file to do so.
Can someone help me out? I'm sure this is trivial, but I can't figure out how to do it.

You may use the compiler attribute of the javac task to set the compiler to Jikes. See the javac task in the Ant documentation for details.
