JDE build/ compilation failed


I have code for a Java App zipped in a file. I extract it, build it and run it using a simulator. Everything goes great. When I make a change to the code and try to rebuild the project, I get the following error:


An exception has occurred in the compiler (1.5.0_01). Please file a bug at the Java Developer Connection (http://java.sun.com/webapps/bugreport)  after checking the Bug Parade for duplicates. Include your program and the following diagnostic in your report.  Thank you.
com.sun.tools.javac.code.Symbol$CompletionFailure: file net\rim\device\internal\ui\Border.class not found


I'm using JDE v. with JDK 1.5.0. I also tried this with JDK 1.4.2. The same thing happened.

Re: JDE build/ compilation failed

This is an issue with the version of JDK you are using.  The following link explains.
