Hi, all!
I'm trying to use ant with eclipse and jikes,
but it seems a little bit tricky...
My problem, now, is this: I can use ant with jikes if I run it from the command line. I run:
"ant myTarget" and it runs fine, compiling my classes (with jikes) and all.
But, if I try to run it from eclipse (click on "myTarget" and then tell it to "run"), it gives me the famous message "Error running jikes compiler"...
Could anyone please help me with this?
Thanks in advance,
Alvim.

I don't have any experience with jikes. However, you can always configure ant to run as a seperate tool and invoke it that way (from eclipse).
This also makes it easier to use the version of ant you want, and not the one that ships with eclipse.
There still might be a way to do what you are looking for... I just don't know it
