Hello,
I am new to ant. Thank in advance for any helps.
My problem is I can not run my java file "hello.class" by using the jar file construct by ant build.xml. However I can successfully run it by using my .class file directly.
The error message prompt by ant like this:

Here is my build.xml using my jar to run:

Hoever, it runs fine while I directly run the .class file under my "myclass" folder using the following code:

Any one? Thanks again.

Make sure Hello is spelled right. Case Sensitivity problem?

Not sure. First make sure that the jar file in ${build} does contain your hello.class file in the right path ( root if default-packaged). Then, may be trying some different format of java task, like this:
<java classname="test.Main">
<arg value="-h"/>
<classpath>
<pathelement location="dist/test.jar"/>
<pathelement path="${java.class.path}"/>
</classpath>
</java>
