Subject RE: Ant 1.4.1 and JUnit

I built an optional.jar as part of the ant build process.  Now that I
look at it, I don't see anything in that jar with "junit" in its name
except junit-frames.xsl and junit-noframes.xsl.  Have I overlooked
something?  Which class should be holding the junit task in

Did you get the optional JAR file also?  It contains the <junit> task

Subject: Ant 1.4.1 and JUnit

I am attempting to upgrade from Ant 1.3 to 1.4.1.  Build.xmls with junit
tasks are failing with this message:

"Could not create task of type: junit. Common solutions are to use
taskdef to declare your task, or, if this is an optional task, to put
the optional.jar in the lib directory of your ant installation

According to the docs, in order to use the <junit> task, I must put
junit.jar in the lib of my ANT_HOME dir.  But it IS there.  What else is
needed to run <junit> tasks?  Or is this error message spurious and
something else wrong?
