Hello -

I have been playing with biojava and NetBeans 4.0, I have been pleasently 
surprised to find it works very well. It copes with the idea of having 
lots of source directories, integrates very well with CVS and does a good 
job of building from the Ant build.xml

The one thing I have had problems with is that it throws 
ClassCastExceptions when building Javadocs from the Ant script. This 
doesn't happen from the command line. It does actually manage to produce 
HTML (presumably without the nice custom taglets).

Googleing around for an answer there is some suggestion it is caused by a 
JVM bug (something to do with forking processes or something). Has anyone 
else noticed this? Anyone got a solution?
