Subject RE: help regarding ANT.

You may get more help if you give more information. Ant is telling you that it cannot find
a class that it needs. This is very likely a classpath issue (that's something that takes
a while for new Java programmers to get used to).

Post your build.xml file and we may be able to offer more help after looking it over.

$ ant -f build.xml generate.html, I get an error:


/build.xml:202: taskdef class org.apache.catalina.ant.DeployTask cannot be


Can anyone let me know why this error is occurring?  Did some googling and
still clueless.


Thanks in advance,
