Description Nathan Kinder 2006-02-08 16:57:38 EST
Building Console fails with Java 1.5.  This is because "enum" has been added as
a reserved keyword in Java 1.5, and we use it as a variable name.  These
variable names need to be changed.

There is also a warning issued during build time about our usage of
Method.invoke().  We are passing a "null" as the second parameter, but invoke()
is overloaded and the compiler has to guess about which method to use.  We need
to cast this parameter to the "Object" type.

Checked into Console (HEAD).  Reviewed by Rich.
Comment 3 Nathan Kinder 2006-02-08 18:52:13 EST
Checked in a modification the the cast used when calling Method.invoke().  This
is needed to maintain Java 1.4 compatibility.  Reviewed by Noriko.
