    Default eclipse 3.4.2 and rmic (jdk1.3 compliant)

    I all, I'm new to java and to eclipse. I had downloaded eclipse 3.4.2 and I'm trying to run a simple rmi sample download from sun site for jsse 1.0.3 because I'm interested on jdk 1.3 development.
    It seem the new project created, rmiTest, has labrary in order to using 1.3 compiler and jre 1.3. I have specified this preferences also in the windows tab in order to refer to eclipse general preferences.
    The next step was that of copy the source code download into eclipse and now I wanna run, so tha first step is to generate stub and skeletron for my server class, HelloImpl, using rmic. I have created the following xml file rmic.xml:
    <project name="rmiTest" basedir="." default="rmic">
    <property name="bin.dir" value="bin" />
    <target name="rmic">

    <rmic stubversion="1.1" base="${bin.dir}" classname="HelloImpl">

    <pathelement path="${bin.dir}" />

    <pathelement path="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_13\lib\tools.jar" />


    but when I try to run it as Ant Build the following compiler error raise:
    Buildfile: C:\Users\ste\workspace\rmiTest\rmic.xml

    [rmic] RMI Compiling 1 class to C:\Users\ste\workspace\rmiTest\bin
    [rmic] error: Invalid class file format in C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\rt.jar(java/rmi/server/UnicastRemoteObject.class). The major.minor version '49.0' is too recent for this tool to understand.
    [rmic] error: Class java.rmi.server.UnicastRemoteObject not found in class HelloImpl.
    [rmic] 2 errors


    What is wrong? Also setting JAVA_HOME to C:\jdk1.3.20 I have the same error. Some suggestion?

    <pathelement path="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_13\lib\tools.jar" />
    Isn't this a path to Java 6?
