Subject Bootstrap BUILD FAILED
Date Tue, 05 Dec 2000 01:04:59 GMT

I downloaded the latest Ant source and have been trying to run
bootstrap.bat.  "Compiling Ant Classes" and "Copying Required Files"
seem to go fine.  When I get to "Building Ant Distribution", however, I
get a "BUILD FAILED" and an error message that says:

D:\ANT\build.xml:11: Class doesn't
support the "file" attribute

Any ideas what's going wrong?  I am a total Ant novice so any help would
be appreciated.  I'm using JDK 1.2.1 on NT.

Also, on a separate issue, the HTML documentation says under "System
Requirements" that the "jaxp.jar" and "parser.jar" files must be in your
classpath and directs the user to the Sun site.  It appears, however,
that the two files are included in the Ant distribution and that the
bootstrap.bat file adds them to the CLASSPATH.  Isn't this a little
misleading?  It appears to add an unnecessary step to the build process.

Thanks, Ross
