You are missing apache Ant for building. Add the ant.jat to your classpath

I have just had a look ... normally there is a tools sub-directory and this contains Ant. as the reference to the libs are made by statements like "./tools/ant.jar" you can't call the build script from another directory. You have to change to the direactory and call "./build.sh all" from there.

Why are you building it?  There are binary distributions available, you only need to build from source if you want to change something.

Mick BarryJava DeveloperCommented:
To build it you need to have xerces tool installed as well as the source release

hi all,
ant.jar is link to ant-1.6.5,jar there is no tools directory

>>I don't have directory called tools

Hence your problem. You need to have the tools jars in the classpath. What are you trying to do with xerces that you need to build it?

for the 3rd time :) install xerces tools, its required to build from source
or just download the binary distribution thats already built for you
