Subject Re: Setting classpath for Taskdef

I got it to work with Ant 1.4 with JDK 1.3.1 on Win2k.

Is ${project} defined and pointing to the right place?

Is ${project}/tools/ant/lib/optional.jar" the correct location
for where you moved the jar to?

Try running your build with -verbose and -debug to see if
you can get any more information from that.
