BTW I'm on a win2K platform using JDK 1.4.1.
Your snippet would look like this:
Jikes needs to be in your PATH - so you probably want to put it in your JDK bin directory.
You need to compile Jikes with encoding support to work with Jasper.
Thanks jonlee - actually I have that configuration set up, so I tried building Jikes w/encoding. However the only build distribution I could find is Unix-based and I am stuck in a Win world.
At the moment I don't have time to create a build script for Win.
Has anyone taken the trouble to do this? Any success building on Win?
I've just succeeded in building jikes with cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com/). Had to get the latest sources for jikes from cvs, though. Just follow the instructions outlined in the link jonlee provided. Copy cygwin1.dll (cygwin\bin) to windows\system32 (or wherever ;-)) and add jikes.exe to your PATH.
Can you make the windows / -encoding supporting Jikes version available somewhere (pretty please!).
At a rough count, there seems to be 5000 bazillion million people asking for a windows version of Jikes that supports encoding (including me).
I would, if I could ;-). It's about 10MB in size. So download cygwin and follow the instructions for building the encoding -enabled version of jikes. It worked right off the box ;-).
