           Summary: <presetdef name="java"> breaks <jspc>
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Optional Tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: msunde@actional.com


If I add a presetdef for java, then the jspc task breaks. There may be a few 
other optional tasks that break due to this.

Notice that the output below does not contain much in the way of information 
for diagnosing the problem. I put the log level to debug and I still didn't get 
much in the way of information.

Note: I have since worked around the problem in my build.

------------------------------------------------------------------
Investigation
------------------------------------------------------------------

After a little investigation it turns out that JasperC.java attempts to create 
the "java" task:
   Java java = (Java) (getProject().createTask("java"));

A bit further on in ComponentHelper.java we end up with a ClassCastException on 
the following line:
   Task task = (Task) createComponent(taskType);

createComponent returns a PreSetDef$PreSetDefinition which can not be casted to 
a Task.

This bug is similar to: http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=33433

BTW, debugging the code showed that there is a field called "cause" with the 
same name in BuildException as the Throwable base class. I don't know if this 
will cause confusion.
