I'm posting again in the hope that someone will be able to point out what I'm doing wrong here. I've seen someone else with this problem on the jboss-user list, and I get the problem on fresh checkouts of both Branch_3_0 and main, on both win2k and linux 2.4 (mandrake 7.2) with sun jdk 1.3.
The problem is part of the iiop module, in the compile-rmi target. I'd be greatful for any advice on this.
I had the identical problem trying to build the iiop module. I was using JDK1.3 and my platform is Windows 2000. I then poked around Sun's website and found lots of people complaining about this problem, but in their own programs, not with JBoss.
Anyway, I simply upgraded to jdk1.3.1_03 and the problem went away. I have been testing my application successfully on a version of JBoss that I built from the sources (although I checked out from the head, not the branch).
Thanks for that - worked a treat. perhaps this should be listed in the build faq.
