Build error:taskdef class org.apache.catalina.ant.ReloadTask can not be found

  • Hi,

    I am a wireless module software developer from China, and be interested in your Mango.

    When I try to build Mango sourcecode with the build instruction on,

    There is a build error:

    d:\mango\app\build.xml:121: taskdef class org.apache.catalina.ant.ReloadTask can not be found.

    Could you tell me what's the problem?

    Thank you in advance!

  • Hi,

    The ReloadTask is defined near the bottom of the build.xml script (in a taskdef). The "location" attribute points to where the task definition can be found, and uses the macro ${tomcat.home}. This macro is defined in your file. Make sure you have it properly defined such that it points to the catalina-ant.jar file as it appears in the task definition.

  • I'm having the some kind of problem. I'm trying to make it work under Windows XP, I have installed Tomcat here: C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0

    So I changed the line in to: tomcat.home=C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0

    And it doesn't work, I still get this message: .

    Buildfile: build.xml
    C:\Documents and Settings\test1234\Pulpit\mango\app\build.xml:120: taskdef class
     org.apache.catalina.ant.ReloadTask cannot be found
    Total time: 0 seconds

    May someone help me with that?

  • Some things to check:

    1. within that directory, is there a "lib" sub-dir containing "catalina-ant.jar"?
    2. have you tried changing "" characters to "/"?
    3. if all else fails, can you try a directory that does not have embedded spaces?

  • Thanks for the answer, of course changing "" characters to "/" works:)

    1. within that directory, is there a "lib" sub-dir containing "catalina-ant.jar"?
