I'm getting an error in a comment. The attachment is a screenshot.

This one is odd. I don't get the error when Eclipse builds automatically. I do when I right click on build.xml to do an Ant build.

Makes me suspect that more than one compiler is in the mix. Anybody know how to force the use of the built in javac?

Using Oxygen.

It looks to me like it is using javac. But it's using the default system encoding and you appear to have Asian characters in your file so it's either UTF-8 encoded or UTF-16 encoded. Personally I'd avoid like the plague the use of any characters that require special encoding. In any case, maybe this link will help you with specifying an appropriate encoding for Ant: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1339352/how-do-i-set-dfile-encoding-within-ants-build-xml

Actually it was an old, I think, compilerarg. The encoding property needed to be specified as UTF-8. The compiler arg actually was causing some really strange errors.
