My system is a laptop running Linux Redhat 9.
I have installed Tomcat 5.0.14 from a binary download distribution.


The sample applications work perfectly.


I can compile my application with no problems.


But when I issue the ant command "ant install" I receive the following
output :


___________________________________________________________



			
Buildfile: build.xml

prepare:

compile:

install:

BUILD FAILED
/home/bkimelman/tomcat1/build.xml:365: Could not create task or type of
type: deploy.

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 'deploy'.
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 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 .

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
classpath

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.

I followed all the "instructions" in the sample build.xml" file with respect
to copying files into the appropriate locations.


I then reran the ant command with the debugging option "ant -d install"


According to the debugging output from ant, the "compilation classpath" does
indeed contain a reference to the JAR file which contains the DeployTask
class file.

Here is the relevant portion from my build.xml file. I created this file by
copying the sample build.xml file and making the appropriate changes.

342 use the
352 "reload" target instead.
353
354 NOTE: This target will only succeed if it is run from the same server
that
355 Tomcat is running on.
356
357 NOTE: This is the logical opposite of the "remove" target.
