    jmxdoclet error with build

    Kevin Newbie

      I'm trying to build jboss for the first time from the src i downloaded from cvs. I'm in the jboss-all\build directory and issued a build.bat command. I get the error below. I have installed xdoclet 1.1.2 on my machine and xdoclet.jar is in the classpath. Any ideas on what is causing this error? I've exhausted the suggestions below.

      thx, k.


      BUILD FAILED
      file:C:/jboss-3.0.6/cvs/jboss-all/common/build.xml:119: Could not create task or
      type of type: jmxdoclet.

      Ant could not find the task or a class this task relies upon.

      This is common and has a number of causes; the usual
      solutions are to read the manual pages then download and
      install needed JAR files, or fix the build file:
      - You have misspelt 'jmxdoclet'.
      Fix: check your spelling.
      - The task needs an external JAR file to execute
      and this is not found at the right place in the classpath.
      Fix: check the documentation for dependencies.
      Fix: declare the task.
      - The task is an Ant optional task and optional.jar is absent
      Fix: look for optional.jar in ANT_HOME/lib, download if needed
      - The task was not built into optional.jar as dependent
      libraries were not found at build time.
      Fix: look in the JAR to verify, then rebuild with the needed
      libraries, or download a release version from apache.org
      - The build file was written for a later version of Ant
      Fix: upgrade to at least the latest release version of Ant
      - The task is not an Ant core or optional task
      and needs to be declared using .

      Remember that for JAR files to be visible to Ant tasks implemented
      in ANT_HOME/lib, the files must be in the same directory or on the
      classpath

      Please neither file bug reports on this problem, nor email the
      Ant mailing lists, until all of these causes have been explored,
      as this is not an Ant bug.
