That's exactly what I just figured out as well after reading Dmitriy's
link. Thanks for the confirmation guys. Apparently 2.6 also has changes to
the import mechanism and whatnot..no wonder I'm chasing ghosts here.

sort of.. :}

The patch is missing a closing " but after fixing that I get:

C:\home\holger\Projects\rabbitmq-java-client\build.xml:55: Generation of
AMQP.java failed with message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "codegen.py", line 393, in <module>

    self.spec = json.load(file(filename))

  File "C:\Developer\Python\lib\json\decoder.py", line 319, in decode
    obj, end = self.raw_decode(s, idx=_w(s, 0).end())
  File "C:\Developer\Python\lib\json\decoder.py", line 338, in raw_decode
    raise ValueError("No JSON object could be decoded")
ValueError: No JSON object could be decoded

The above is with 2.6; I get exactly the same message on 2.5/Linux after
installing simplejson, so at least it's consistent.

Yeah, JSON is really awesome. :->
