Subject Derby build failure.
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2005 11:04:19 GMT

Im trying to compile Derby on my computer (Derby from SVN and
source generates same messge), but when I run ant it generates an error.
The error is the same whether sane is true or false. I am running
ant-1.6.2, java-1.4.2_09 / java-1.3.1_16. The message from ant:

Buildfile: build.xml






/home/morimekta/workspace/DerbySVN/build.xml:37: The following error
occurred while executing this line:
/home/morimekta/workspace/DerbySVN/build.xml:51: The following error
occurred while executing this line:
/home/morimekta/workspace/DerbySVN/build.xml:62: The following error
occurred while executing this line:
/home/morimekta/workspace/DerbySVN/build.xml:66: The following error
occurred while executing this line:
/home/morimekta/workspace/DerbySVN/build.xml:523: Could not create task
or type of type: propertyfile.

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 'propertyfile'.
    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 
      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 apache.org
  - 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.
