Thanks again for assigning to me the issue #60219 related to port ehcache.
It helped me develop a much better understanding about a few things related
to the portfile and the ports.

I've made the necessary changes that fetches the new jar file
appropriately, checks with updated checksum values correctly, and I've
removed the Kaffe dependency, replacing it with the Java Portgroup. It has
given expected results on testing, however following are few things that
I'd like to know:-

1) Does this port still need to depend on apache-ant? Facing an error in
apache-ant, I've removed the statement, which helped me get rid of the
build-related error. If the apache-ant still needs to be retained, I'll
have to look into it to fix the error that was like *"Command failed : ant
clean dist". *Please tell me if the dependency becomes redundant after
inclusion of Java portgroup or is still important.

2) On running the command "sudo port test", when it enters the testing
phase, it says "*Failed to test ehcache: ehcache has no tests turned on.
see 'test.run' in portfile(7)*". I feel it is not related to the
correctness of the portfile code, but may please guide me in how I can get
rid of this issue and be able to test it successfully. I'm submitting the
main.log for your kind reference.

Thanks for all the assistance till now. I'd be highly grateful at your kind
suggestions w.r.t. the above issues.

With Warmest Regards,
Yours Sincerely,
