can't compile ireport 0.2.3 with ANT

2004-03-08 04:21



i downloaded the last 0.2.3 version of ireport.

When i tried to launch ireport with ANT it failed outputing the following :



- 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 optional.jar is absent

Fix: look for optional.jar in ANT_HOME/lib, download if needed

- The task was not built into optional.jar as dependent

libraries were not found at build time.

Fix: look in the JAR to verify, then rebuild with the needed

libraries, or download a 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>.


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.



When i try to launch iReport0.2.2 by building with ant it works fine.


Do you have any idea ????
