Re: JAVAC MESSAGE FILE IS BROKEN

Hi Cristy,
 
Sun lists this as Bug Id 4110423 with JDK 1.2beta3, to be fixed in
beta4.  Here's the description:
 
  The compiler should fail to compile this example with error message:
  "Exception java.io.IOException must be caught, or it must be
  declared in the throws clause of this method."
  Instead of this , javac report:"JAVAC MESSAGE FILE IS BROKEN"
 
So you probably need to add "throws java.io.IOException" to the signature
of the method containing line 311 of your modified GoesRetrieval.java.
 
Good luck, and let us know if you have any other problems.
 
Bill
