93Re: Welcome to the discussion group for JSR199 (standard API for Java compilers)
- Jul 25, 2003The middle road approach suits us. The long term story should however
consider existing alternate API, such as the one our Eclipse compiler
provides as of today.
This API isn't officially public yet, but it provides support for
abstracting compilation units, name environments, dependency
information and a few other aspects (like problem reporting).
For the middle road story, having compiler tools be able to process
the command line arguments, is a big improvement over the basic Ant
task compiler adapter approach.
Minor request: would it be possible to abstract the way a compiling
tool could feed a compilation error back ? Something fairly simple
containing a message, a file name and a text range ?
