Package: jikes
Version: 1:1.21.1-2
Severity: important

The default target for generated class files is JDK 1.4 (class version 48.0) which makes these classes unusable by JDK 1.3. A lot of the Java packages in main are built using Jikes so if they are now rebuilt with the latest version, the result will be different.

This has affected tomcat4 because some of its dependencies were rebuilt with the new Jikes version, see e.g. #263412 and #265253. Please change Jikes to create classes suitable for JDK 1.3 by default when no JDK 1.4 features (i.e. assertions) are used.

You filled the bug http://bugs.debian.org/265462 in Debian BTS
against the package jikes. I'm closing it as fixed in *unstable*,
but it will remain open for older distributions.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/508366. That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
