Subject RE: 'BUILD FAILED'

How are you invoking ant?  If you type

      ant build

at the command prompt, you will likely receive the message 'Target `build'
does not exist in this project.' because the default build.xml file does
not contain the line <target name="build">.

You should be invoking ant by simply typing

      ant

at the command prompt.  Ant will search the current directory for a file
called build.xml by default, parse any <target> tags it finds, resolve any
dependencies which may exist among those targets, and execute those
targets.

Hope this helps.

I just realized 'build failed' is a generic message. Here are some lines
from the log file:

BUILD FAILED

Target `build' does not exist in this project.

 void org.apache.tools.ant.Project.tsort(java.lang.String,
java.util.Hashtable, java.util.Hashtable, java.util.Stack,
java.util.Vector)

Kevin

Look at the top of build.xml and take a look at the property called 'build'
