Subject Re: Cant get ant to run
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2003 09:49:32 GMT
Ant seems to be running OK, is there a build.xml file in that dir?

>> When no arguments are specified, Ant looks for a build.xml file in the
current directory and, if found, uses that file as the build file and
runs the target specified in the default attribute of the <project> tag.
To make Ant use a build file other than build.xml, use the command-line
option -buildfile file, where file is the name of the build file you
want to use.
