Subject Problem with -Psetup.eclipse
Date Mon, 23 Nov 2009 12:33:09 GMT

I have tried to setup an Eclipse Workspace using the profile
-Psetup.eclipse but I have had different errors. Here is what I have
done to solve them on Windows using JAVA 6

1) Could not load definitions from resource
net/sf/antcontrib/ It could not be found.

[INFO] [antrun:run {execution: create-prop}]
[INFO] Executing tasks
[taskdef] Could not load definitions from resource
net/sf/antcontrib/ It could not be found.
[echo] Maven version: 2.1-SNAPSHOT
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] An Ant BuildException has occured: Could not create task or
type of type: propertyregex.

Ant could not find the task or a class this task relies upon.

This is common and has a number of causes; the usual
solutions are to read the manual pages then download and
install needed JAR files, or fix the build file:
- You have misspelt 'propertyregex'.
Fix: check your spelling.
- The task needs an external JAR file to execute
and this is not found at the right place in the classpath.
Fix: check the documentation for dependencies.
Fix: declare the task.
- The task is an Ant optional task and the JAR file and/or libraries
implementing the functionality were not found at the time you
yourself built your installation of Ant from the Ant sources.
Fix: Look in the ANT_HOME/lib for the 'ant-' JAR corresponding to the
task and make sure it contains more than merely a META-INF/MANIFEST.MF.
If all it contains is the manifest, then rebuild Ant with the needed
libraries present in ${ant.home}/lib/optional/ , or alternatively,
download a pre-built release version from
- The build file was written for a later version of Ant
Fix: upgrade to at least the latest release version of Ant
- The task is not an Ant core or optional task
and needs to be declared using <taskdef>.
- You are attempting to use a task defined using
<presetdef> or <macrodef> but have spelt wrong or not
defined it at the point of use

Remember that for JAR files to be visible to Ant tasks implemented
in ANT_HOME/lib, the files must be in the same directory or on the

Please neither file bug reports on this problem, nor email the
Ant mailing lists, until all of these causes have been explored,
as this is not an Ant bug.

Solution : add the following dependncy in the root pom.xml of camel
(plugin maven-ant-plugin)


2) An Ant BuildException has occured: taskdef class cannot be found

Solution : add the following dependencies in the root pom.xml of camel
(plugin maven-ant-plugin)

<dependency> <!-- NEW LOCATION OF CLASSES FOR JDK 6 -->

<dependency> <!-- REQUIRED FOR CLASSES com.sun.mirror.apt -->
