Subject Re: Task doesn't support the nested * element
Date Mon, 14 Aug 2006 14:35:08 GMT
I have just tried ant 1.6.5, which also fails but with a null pointer 
exception

  build.xml:215: java.lang.NullPointerException

Note: the error only occurs when running ant from the API, when running 
ant in command line it works as expected.
