I know that David Morris uses Ant on the iSeries, so he will probably know 
the answer if he is around today.  You might check out his open source 
project as he says he has some stuff for Ant in there.


I am not sure if it is just to make Ant run on an iSeries, or if he added 
some Ant tasks for doing things like building RPG objects -- or both.

As Scott said, you should contact SoftLanding tech support for help on 
managing IFS objects.  We are completely integrated with WDSC and have 
been supporting the IFS since the late 90's.  We also provide Ant add-in 
tasks for TurnOver so that you can have an Ant script build your 
application and then automatically deploy it with TurnOver.

Why are you trying to run Ant on the iSeries anyway?  Why not just compile 
it on a PC and ship the class/JAR files out to the iSeries?

        Subject:        Modern compiler not found - looking for classic 
compiler error wh       en using ant on the as/400

Has anyone had this problem when using ant on the As/400 to build their 
applications ?  I keep running into this problem.  Were are using the 
version of the JDK.  Running V5R1.  I have set the *SYS level JAVA_HOME
environment variable to /QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk13/.  I still get 
    [javac] Modern compiler not found - looking for classic compiler 

Cannot use classic compiler, as it is not available. A common solution is 
set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to your jdk directory.


        Does anyone have any ideas as to what is causing this and why ?  I
can use the same build.xml and the same version of ant on my PC and it 
fine.  Using ant version apache-ant-1.5.3-1.  Any ideas  ? 

            Also,  have any of you guys used turnover for source control 
java objects in the IFS ?  We use WSDc 5.0 to develop our project.
Currently we are using Sourcesafe for source control,  but it has no 
for distribution.  In our normal RPG development,  we use turnover for
source control as well as distribution.  We would like to have the same
implementation for our Java code,  but setting it up right in the IFS to
preserve the package directory tree seems to be difficult.
