I am attempting to compile the Isabelle/Scala layer from the 2009-2 release. I get the following errors when executing the build-jars script in the Pure directory:

Failed to compile sources

Any thoughts; I am running Scala-2.8.0, should I have a different version?

The Isabelle2009-2 bundle already contains a compiled jar, together with the Scala version that was used to compile it: Scala-2.8.0.RC5. The Scala people do introduce incompatibilities at times, so this is meant as a fail safe configuration.

Compiling it yourself should work nonetheless, since Scala-2.8.0.RC5 is practically identical to, IIRC.

The above failure to access java.lang.System looks very strange. What is your basic platform: OS version, JDK version? Can you run the precompiled "isabelle scala" and "isabelle jedit" from the official bundle?
