Subject Re: Building Ant 1.7beta
Date Sun, 27 Aug 2006 00:31:59 GMT
That didn't help much.  Now I can no longer access Ant.  When I try to 
run build.bat, I get the following message:

$ build.bat
error: Missing required jar files.

The Ant tool is required. Download Ant from the following URL and place the ant.jar
file in the lib/ directory.

Please download Xalan2 from
and place the following files in the lib/ directory:


Please download Xerces2 from
and place the following files in the lib/ directory:


If building ManekiNeko, James Clark's Jing Relax NG validator
is also required. Please download the Jar file distribution
from and place
the following file in the lib/ directory:


I tried collcting all these jars, to no avail.  When I try to download 
the xalan.jar mentioned, the server responds with a Forbidden error.

This seems like a lot of work to just download the latest binary of the 
beta.  Is there some guide as to how to build ant 1.7?  Or is it already 
built somewhere?
