Hi,

I have created my own custom task for Ant as follows:



I have placed the following ant build file in the same folder where this java class file is kept:



However, on executing it gives the error "taskdef class com.ant.AntTest cannot be found". I know it's a classpath issue but how do I fix it? Please note that this is my first ant hands-on.

Thanks in advance.

Ankit

The base build directory is not automatically in the classpath. You need to add a classpath or classpathref to your taskdef and reference the JAR file (or base directory) containing your task class.
