Build Failed: ant Remove, ant Install

Hi I am a bit new to this so I know really the very basic things.

My CI2260 folder is in a H Folder in my Home Directory.

This is what happens
Right when type ant clean in the CI2260 folder
linux-phax:/home/rudu/H/CI2260 # ant clean
Buildfile: build.xml


Total time: 0 seconds
ant remove
linux-phax:/home/rudu/H/CI2260 # ant remove
Buildfile: build.xml

 [undeploy] FAIL - No context exists for path /CI2260

/home/rudu/H/CI2260/build.xml:453: FAIL - No context exists for path /CI2260

Total time: 0 seconds
ant install
linux-phax:/home/rudu/H/CI2260 # ant install
Buildfile: build.xml

    [mkdir] Created dir: /root/tomcat
    [mkdir] Created dir: /root/tomcat/WEB-INF
    [mkdir] Created dir: /root/tomcat/WEB-INF/classes

/home/rudu/H/CI2260/build.xml:255: /usr/share/tomcat6/endorsed not found.

Total time: 0 seconds

.... I have attached my Build.xml and Build Properties

------------------------[SOMETHINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW]-------------------------
----->  Also you should know is that the Build and Build Properties and files from my university so I have not made them

---->  I have Apache2 Installed and Tomcat6

----> I followed the instructions of my tutor
in which I found where he says :

To configure Tomcat and Ant
in /etc/ant.d create (as superuser) a file called catalina-ant5
in this file enter the text /tomcat/catalina-ant
check /etc/tomcat6/tomcat-users.xml looks like this and IS NOT COMMENTED OUT:


"ant clean" did not work... but then I changed it to /tomcat6/catalina-ant
then ant clean did work...

----> type sudo /etc/init.d/tomcat restart to restart the server also i had to change it to: sudo /etc/init.d/tomcat6 restart to make this command work.

I hope i have give you enough information...
could you please explain and tell me what those errors and and a solution for it thank you.

If any more information is needed please ask thank you. v.much

All I had to do was create a folder called endorsed in /usr/share/tomcat6/

oh and the folder I made was changed to root as owner... with this command type: chown root foldername

switched on superuser coz it wouldn't let me copy it in there by Typing: su

then I did type: cp -r foldername /usr/share/tomcat6/

hmm that's it I think.
chown root foldername
cp -r foldername /usr/share/tomcat6/
