No regular expresson matcher found


Recommended Posts

In trying to run the demos, I get the above error on both SuSE 10.1 and Fedora Core 5 with similar installations of Ant and JasperReports. After Googling, I downloaded some jakarta regexp JARs and put them in twenty or so different folders before giving up...I always get the same erroron "ant compile" or similar: "No regular expression matcher found".


What am I doing wrong? Where do they go?

Nevermind...I figured it out. As it turns out, many new versions of Linux (and coincidentally, both SuSE 10.1 and Core 5) include with their default installation of ant a file /etc/ant.conf and a directory /etc/ant.d . I moved both of those to append their names with ".old" and re-initiated my session...not my Ant 1.6 installation is used.


It tricks ya, you see? I'm pretty sure the conf file re-establishes my ANT_HOME to a directory I didn't want it to use. It only took me a week...but I figured it out.
