Hello Colin,

Is the extra functionality provided by javac2 available as a
post-compile step? I'd like to try moving to jikes to avoid the
annoying javac bug described here:

Does jikes support generics at all? As far as I can see its last release
was in 2004.

Jikes does not, but the Eclipse compiler certainly does. I think the question still stands.

The UI Designer bytecode instrumentation performed by IDEA is a separate
compilation step, which is performed independently of the java compiler used.

That's a good question, I thought it was actively maintained but maybe not. It seems like you can compile using the 5.0 libraries but it doesn't support 5.0 language features.

Back to the drawing board...

Does this also include the nullability assertions? Is there a description somewhere of how we can invoke this?

Cheers,

If you mean the Ant task rather than IDEA's compilation, then it's currently
tied to javac. It's all open-source (redist\src\src_javac2.zip) so you can
hack together a similar task for a different Java compiler.
