Netbeans (Forte for Java) will work with Ant 1.4.  All you need to do is
place the ANT jars (optional as well) inside the ext directory.  I managed
to get my ANT 1.4 scripts to work using this method.  However, a proper
netbean for building 1.4 Ant scripts would be nice!

I was pretty sure it as ANT 1.3
