I can't seem to figure out what ANT is complaining about here. All of the forum posts I've seen with this error are related to custom or nonstandard tags. I'm not doing that.
BUILD FAILED
C:\XPR\XPR_JAVA\build.xml:4: Problem: failed to create task or type properties
Cause: The name is undefined.
Action: Check the spelling.
Action: Check that any custom tasks/types have been declared.
Action: Check that any <presetdef>/<macrodef> declarations have taken place.




thanks in advance

I didn't know that was how you did properties in Ant. So I googled "ant properties" and it led me to a page about the "property" (not "properties") task: http://ant.apache.org/manual/Tasks/property.html.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
