Hmmm... I use Java and Ant, and I get the full error printing out when
I run ant. You might want to look at your settings of your <javac>
task and make sure you aren't killing the output somehow.

Are you watching the screen and seeing the errors, but the errors
aren't in your log? In that case, Ant might be sending the errors to
STDERR instead of STDOUT.

If you have a Unix box, you need to do the following:

    $ ant > logfile.txt 2>&1

That will put both STDERR and STDOUT into the file logfile.txt.

If you are on Windows, you need to do the following:

C:\> ant >& logfile.txt
