Ant used the jikes compiler. I dont know if the error was caused by ant or jikes or the code itself, but i am stumped. Is it because some part of the code did not compile ? Has any one experienced this ? If there was an error, what file do i need to look at to see the errors ?
"Messages should have been provided" means that Ant ran something (jikes, here) and that something exited with an error status, but beyond that, Ant has no idea what went wrong; therefore, Ant is hoping that jikes "provided some messages" directly to you.
As an aside, you typically get better replies by providing a very specific subject (for example mentioning Ant) and posting in the most specific forum you can think of.
