[Biojava-l] Compiling with Jikes

What sort of errors did you get?

Were they complaints about accessing static (final?) class data fields
using instance variables?


Foo foo = new foo();
int x = foo.x;

(where x is a class variable)

The Sun compiler (last time I used it .. which was ages ago :-) lets this
pass, but other compilers are stricter and report an error.
