    How to compile the source code ?

    Andre Newbie

      When I try build the server from source code I get the error :

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/tools/ant/Main

      I have Ant 1.5.1 installed and working on my system.
      In the docs says is to go to the build directory and then run build.sh.
      There are something missed ?

      TIA.

          Do you have a tools/lib directory containing ant?

          JBoss includes all the build tools except the jdk,
          so that the tools are versioned with the source.

            I was using the 3.2RC1 version.
            And the first version of it was broken.
            Then I get a current version from CVS (checkout jboss-all).
            I still receive a error. Looks like xdoclet do not find the jmxdoclet task definition.
            But this is the log I receive when I try to compile it :

            [root@unit0 30]# cd jboss-all/build/
            [root@unit0 build]# ./build.sh

            file:/root/cvs/jboss/30/jboss-all/common/build.xml:118: 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.

              use
              -r Branch_3_2 co jboss-3.2
