Hello everybody,

I'm trying to get JWNL to run with the Examples.java script, and getting the following error:

Mar 20, 2006 1:44:39 AM net.didion.jwnl.util.MessageLog doLog

(I'm using eclipse).
Anyone knows what to do? I read through other messages on the same topic, and it seems to be a WN version problem. But what is the fix??

Thank you very much in advance,

Aly
