Java Compiler Issue for version 1.2

In my Linux RedHat Enterprise 4.7/Tomcat 6/JDK environment, I am seeing an error at runtime from my webapplication that tries to compile some java rules in XML file. I only have JDK 1.5 installed in my machine which I have indicated in ,.bash_profile as JAVA_HOME so that I don't use any other variable by mistake. Redhat installation came with JDK 1.4 whih I am not using. However, I don't know how come 1.2 is coming as per the log below. When I look at my ant build file, I see there are couple of eclipse related target, but those doidn't seem to be vulnerable to me. I don't have Eclipse installed and hence there should be no side effect of that.

Any idea if I am missing something very obvious?

RuleCompiler Rule Compilation Error : details : Eclipse Java Compiler 0.319_R21x

I don't know what the "RuleCompiler" is, but it seems to pass some flags that the Java compiler doesn't understand. Do the docs of the RuleCompiler say anything about configuration?

Have you ever installed Oracle or something else which alters your PATH? Have you reviewed your PATH with echo $PATH ?
I agree. Here's the link:
