Hi,

I want to log the compile time errors in a log file, preferably an .xls file instead of a .log file. Can any one please help me how to get arround this problem??

Find the classic Daconta article entitled "when Runtime.exec() won't" and read that. It has an example with calling the Java Compiler.
Divert the error and output streams into your files.

Try that, it might work; I haven't tried myself.

Don't know how to get the errors into .xls format, but it should be easy to get them into comma separated value (.csv) format.

Rather than compiling by running javac directly, use Ant to create a build script; then use Ant's reporting capabilities to put the results in whatever format you need.

Why do you need it in an XLS file? Have you tried Ant and its reporting capabilities?
