Eclipse: Ant build results in "cannot find symbol"
Joined: Mar 25, 2007
I've been working on a project for a while, but now my ANT build has stopped working. I'm using my company's custom scripts that extend ANT and make use of a Maven POM file. This has worked fine for weeks. It's been a while since I last did an Ant build, so I have no idea what I could have changed to result in this.
I should note that a normal build works just fine; Eclipse itself shows no errors. But when I run the ANT build, I get a number of errors. All of them state the name of the source file and "cannot find symbol." They then state the symbol is a specific class. Every error refers to the same class.
I deleted the JAR from both the project directory and the local repository so it would be forced to pull the most up-to-date company version of the JAR. I've looked at the JAR in Eclipse and opened it to make sure that, yes, it DOES include the right file, and that file DOES include the right class. I've checked to make sure it was on the build path. Does anyone have any ideas?
