Jikes 1.19

Has anyone gotten Jikes 1.19 to work in 1136? It's telling me that java.lang cannot be found in my classpath. Jikes 1.18 works fine (havne't had the issues reported in "#23451- jikes support broken" for several builds).

This is strange -- Jikes 1.19 won't even start on my PC from IDEA, but works fine on my Mac. It works fine on both from Ant.

I have similar problems with Jikes 1.19, as if the classpath was incorrect !
I reverted back to 1.18 :(

same here (win xp):

Information: 1 error
Information: 0 warnings
Information: 0:0:0:0: Semantic Warning: The file "N" is not a valid directory.

...
etc...

It looks like Jikes 1.19 is broken, it has nothing to do with 1136.

I checked the jikes bug list and found two bugs releated to this problem. (#3845 and #3848) Hopefully there will be a patch out soon.

There were people posting to the Jikes mailing list complaining that 1.19 won't run on Windows at all. So it seems this probably isn't an IDEA problem, per se.

It seems to be a jikes problem with the path separator being hardcoded to : instead of being ; on windows.

it's rubbish. It spits out a boatload of unasked for warnings, it has info messages that cannot be suppressed, and worst of all, the bug that stops 1.18 working correctly in IDEA is still present.

Amazingly, it took them over a year to produce 1.19 and for it to have such poor regressions makes me sad. Makes you wonder if they even tested it.

After many vocal complaints, the Jikes folks have updated the windows binary to one that works. Or so their recent email to their mailing list said. I'm not running Windows right now so I can't test it, but after the response they got for the bad version I bet they tested this one.

Here's the link from their email:

Thank you David for the link and the good news.
I'm going to download that and see if it works better ;)

I can confirm that the new 1.19-1 version of Jikes works great under 1138 running on XP.

Hmm, it works for me on windows 2000. But I get a failed assertion when
I use jdk1.5 alpha. I haven't tried it yet with the beta version.
