Package: kaffe
Version: 2:1.1.4.PRE1.1.5-11
Severity: normal

Please, bear with me with this bugreport, as I am a novice regarding Java.
I would appreciate any help that you might have.

BTW, just as a side note, I became interested in Java after it entered
Debian's testing distribution, which meant to me that Java was finally an
option for some classes that I intend to teach.

Anyway, I have one source file that *fails* to compile with Blackdown's
JDK, but that compiles *correctly* with kaffe's compiler. Some (unkind)
souls told me that kaffe's compiler is in error here and I honestly don't

You can see the file, including more details in my Usenet post at:

Any comments or questions regarding my setup are welcome.

Thanks for your attention, Rogério.

P.S.: I'm also Cc'ing the people on kaffe.org's mailing list.
