OK, from what you have written by now it really seems that this target is
not executed. How is the line that starts with "<project.." look like in
your build.xml? Is the attribute "default" pointing to your target
"get-code"? If not, how does the target to which the default-attribute
points look like? Does it have an attribute 'depends="..."' ? Maybe yo
should post your complete build.xml so we can have a look at it?

It's really long (about ten pages). The project tag loks like;

<project name="asi" default="main" basedir=".">

and "main" executes 7 other targets. So I believe that I will be all set if
I put " depends="get-code" " part in a code

Another question. Have you considered to get in touch with Ant using a
simple build.xml which does not use vss*-tasks (simply compiling and maybe
generating API-docs and/or creating a jar file)?

That would be really nice. But I am suppose to make vss*-task modification
on the build.xml file I have been given.

No, it uses the username and password you put in the "login" attribute of
the vssget task.

Ok. Then every user has to modify this part in build.xml based on their own
user names and passwords ??

Yes, very possible. You should create one yourself. Just start an editor and
out a line like

"SET SSDIR=\\server\share\dir\to\vss"

in the file. You can use edit for that, just execute "edit env.bat" in the
directory where your build.xml lives. And yes, you must execute that file
everytime you open a new DOS window. You must replace the \\server... thing
with other settings for your local environment. Ask your system
administrator if you are unsure which they are.

please correct me if iam wrong "SSDIR" is suppose to be where my
srcsafe.ini lives in my computer right ?

Do you mean *your* company network? Are there other people at your work
which use Ant? Maybe they have some experience with setting Ant up in your
local environment?

yes i meant my company network. Ant is new to everbody here. And i am the
one who is expected to handle with "ant" part of the project.
