it seems you havent compiled the application, or the compile failed...

I'm not a ant guru, but ...
Ant is a build tool. afaik it does not do much on its own.
Say you develop a killer webapplication, and you'd wanna create a 
distribution version of that app. this process often includes many 
individual tasks. You'd have to compile your servlets, see to it that all 
the required libraries are in place, copy jsps, create a war file and other 
things... With ant you can do this automatically. But you have to describe 
what ant should copy where etc., and this is done in an xml file called 
and subpages for further information...
