Hi all,

I'm using Apache Ant version 1.6.5 and I get the error Unexpected element "{}war".

My code is as follows -

<war destfile="myapp.war" webxml="../Webroot/WEB-INF/web.xml">
<fileset dir="../Webroot"/>
<fileset dir="../Webroot/admin"/>
<fileset dir="../Webroot/conf"/>
<fileset dir="../Webroot/css"/>
<fileset dir="../Webroot/images"/>
<fileset dir="../Webroot/resources"/>
<fileset dir="../Webroot/scripts"/>
<lib dir="../WebRoot/WEB-INF/lib"/>
<classes dir="../WebRoot/WEB-INF/classes"/>

My build.xml exists in the root directory in a folder called buid

Any help will be appreciated. Hurry please
