Hi folks, I am very new to java and spring. I was trying out my first ever application in spring.
I followed this tutorial http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/tutorials/os-ag-springframe2/section6.html.

I am unable to build using ant.
I get this error when I try to build.


There is no where in that tutorial the author has mentioned to create build.xml file.
As a new bie I guess 'build.xml' is a file which ant generates.

Help me get through this step.
Thanks in advance.

Ant reads the build.xml. It's like a list of build commands in XML form. You need to have a build.xml file. I'm surprised IBM didn't supply one.

Also, I tried the downloads page for that tutorial. It contains a zip file with everything you need - including the build.xml.
