The first thing that I see is that you are using "java" (which runs a program) rather than
"javac" (which compiles a program). Is that what you intended to do? 

The second thing is that IF you do mean to invoke "java" rather than "javac" your parameters
are wrong. In particular, you are trying to set the classpath on a java task. If you do mean
to do that, you should also include the parameter 'fork="yes"' to make ant start a separate
java process for which it can set the classpath.
