Thanks for your quick answer. The problem with javadoc was that I forgot to add 
a sourcefiles attribute. An error message like "BUILD FATAL ERROR: source or 
package must be specified" would certainly be helpfull, though this information 
can of course be figured out indirectly through the output of the javadoc 
program.

The javac task however still silently fails to do anything, unless I 
set "build.compiler" to "jikes". Clearing the output directory beforehand 
doesn't help. There is no error message even if I introduce an error into a 
source file. The task does however recognize how many files should be compiled. 

Since even deleting javac.exe from the %JAVA_HOME%\bin directory doesn't make a 
difference at all I suspect that Ant doesn't find javac.exe on my system, but 
doesn't dare tell me so. Strange, since it does find javadoc.exe. Any ideas?
