I am doing a fresh installation on my computer. I have installed J2SE5.0, Eclipse3.2, and Tomcat5.2. Everything worked fine, that is, my previous deployed applications on Tomcat are running smootly. Next step was to install Ant(6.5) so that I can use Ant for my projects.

I installed Ant on C:\Progra~1\Ant\apache-ant-1.6.5. I then set the Environment Variables As follows:

PATH=%PATH%;%ANT_HOME%\bin;%JAVA_HOME%\bin;... (... refers to other variables).

Now, I try to run an ant target from Eclipse. When I do so, as soon as the target needs to compile it throws me an error as follows:

I can not understand what I have wrong since I have follows some tutorials over the internet that do not describe anything that I did not already do. I am not really sure if it is an Ant problem. However Javac works fine from TextPad, etc.

Thanks for any answers.
