I decided to work over-time on the cattle drive. I'm going through each assignment at home now as well as at work. I'm all the way through to ant. Ant can't find build.properties in the user.home; build fails at deploy.

I've re-installed ant, triple-checked PATH/CLASSPATH, etc. What am I missing?

Work pc = Windows XP Pro on domain
Home pc = Windows XP Pro on workgroup

I re-checked the PATH and found two extra semi-colons at the beginning of the statement. Now the the project compiles and builds successfully but does not distribute to /orion/applications folder. Stay tuned...

I believe I have figured it out (I'll verify when i get home) and staying true to Cattle Drive form I'll try only to lead you to water...solution = WATCH YOUR PUNCTUATION!

I did find ant -diagnostics to be VERY helpful.

AS YOU WERE...

Ant Update

While I did have a punctuation issue that prevented a successfull build, the REAL issue turned out to be a flawed binary file. Re-downloading ant solved it. Case closed!
