Subject FW: Help on first build
Date Wed, 17 May 2000 03:28:52 GMT
Hi there,

I sent the message below to the tomcat-user list but had no answer.
I am not sure it is appropriate to post it here but you are the experts.
I downloaded ant, read the manual,read all tomcat-user list related messages
and still can't get ant to build the first directory tree.

If I did wrong posting this request for help please let me know.

I installed Tomcat 3.1 and it works fine, including examples. The
environment, including CVS, is set as recommended by the development guide.

However, when i try the first build (at this time the application has only
HTML and JSP pages), the exception
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:org/apache/tools/ant/main is thrown from main

I hit build.bat (Win98 OS) from my development directory, which is separate
from, not under tomcat home. Just in case, i included both tomcat bin and
the development directories in PATH. Classpaths and ant.jar are apparently

build.xml has a change only in the property to indicate the name of
my application.

I sure did something wrong with directories but i can't figure what.

Any hint?
