a sample how to exclude;

<!-- Generate the war file -->
    <target name="war" depends="prepare-war">

        <war warfile="${final.war.name}"
             webxml="${conf.dir}/web.xml"
             manifest="${out.conf.dir}/manifest">

            <classes dir="${out.classes.dir}">
                <!-- Do not include test files in the runtime jar -->
                <exclude name="**/Test*.*"/>
                <exclude name="**/test*.*"/>

                <!-- Also exclude the test cactus.properties file -->
                <exclude name="cactus.properties"/>
            </classes>

            <fileset dir="${web.dir}">
                <exclude name="test/**"/>
            </fileset>
        </war>

    </target>

If i write like this, still these 2 jars existing in WEB-INF/lib directory.



<war destFile="${temp.dir}/${x.war.name}" webxml="../web/WEB-INF/web.xml" manifest="../web/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF" duplicate="preserve">
      <classes dir="${web.compile.dir}"/>
      <fileset dir="../web/" includes="jsp/**"/>
      <fileset dir="../web/" includes="*.jsp"/>
      <fileset dir="../web/" includes="*.html"/>
<fileset  dir="../web/WEB-INF/lib">
      <exclude name="classes12.jar"/>
      <exclude name="jstl-1.1.0.jar"/>

</fileset>
<webinf dir="../web/WEB-INF" excludes="web.xml,/lib/*.jar,/classes/**" />
</war>

Try

<webinf dir="../web/WEB-INF" includes="**/*.jar" excludes="**/classes12.jar,**/jstl-1.1.0.jar" />

That should be the only element you need for WEB-INF/lib, so get rid of the others
