Ant prints that error when the <property> task is missing a "value",
"location", or "refid" attribute to go with the "name" attribute. In other
words, if there's a <property> task like:

  <property name="foo"/>

instead of like one of:

  <property name="foo" value="bar"/>
  <property name="foo" location="/usr/local/foofile"/>
  <property name="foo" refid="fooID"/>

I can't say why the build.xml file would have a broken <property>, or what
the actual correction should be, since I don't know anything about the
JBoss stuff or what the copy of the build.xml you have looks like.
