Including the meost recent 'javac' compiler (in tools.jar) in the netrexx distribution

ThSITC
I do recognice that the Eclipse compiler is contained in the NetRexx
distribution in NetRexxF.jar.

Might it not be an *idea* for simplicity to include Sun's tools.jar as
well (when this does'nt violate any
copyright rules) ?

That would enable NetRexx users to use:

- ecj      for development (easy, as it is the default)
- javac  for deployment   (only in the last compilation, for deployment)

as Kermit indicated that -ecj does produce bigger classes than -javac

The point is that installing the JDK is not so simple, as it takes a lot
of energy to *move* the proper
tools.jar of the JDK to the proper .../JRE/LIB/EXT directory

Thomas.

It doesn't take quite as much energy simply to put tools.jar in your
CLASSPATH, Thomas.

Plus; the Oracle tools.jar will only work if you're using Oracle's Java SDK.  Anyone using a different vendor's Java likely will experience many unexpected problems.
