tiger beta

I am studying for the tiger beta with "developer's notebook" which comes with code samples and ant build file:

I installed tiger JDK and Websphere 5, but am having trouble with ant. I get the error "javac nested compilerarg". It looks like is not using Tiger compiler features although I have only tiger JDK installed.

I have had in my hands the book "Java how to program" 6th edition. It has some chapters on 5.0. Does anybody know if it has the relevant contents for the exam?

No need to worry about Ant. Just use the plain old "javac" to run the samples passing required arguments.

I agree. Here's the link:
