Dear Brothers and sisters,I am new to ant.

You missed "apache-ant-1.6.5" in ANT_HOME. Also remove the semi-colon from the end of ant home and java home

where you installed it =
D:\Room_Mates\riyaz\Installd\ant\apache-ant-1.6.5.

you set the ANT_HOME =
D:\Room_Mates\riyaz\Installd\ant;

Can you hear that? That's my theme music. I don't know where it comes from. Check under this tiny ad:
