There must in line 133 of "D:\workspace\springapp\build.xml" in the 'list' target, be some kind of ref. to this web site: "http://localhost:8080/manager/list" - is this server running, and is it possible to call the URL??

thinks for you response !!
yes the server is running
but it is impossible to call url
the 404 tomcat erreor is displayed (sorry for this engish)
this is the error :

"La ressource demand´┐Że (/springapp/index.jsp) n'est pas disponible"
for my site home page

and i try this also same thing
La ressource demand´┐Że (/manager/list) n'est pas disponible.

Good ! it work now perfectly
the problem was in the server configuration and the envirement variables path because there wasn't any path pointed to my jdk home and there was also some configurations in tomcat server that i didn't do for first time

my problem was resolved by looking in this quik configuration tutorial


sorry: my english .. i know it bad

I am new for spring framework and studying the document from I have eclipse 3.4 configured with tomcat 6.0 I checked for all the environment variables and they seemed to have correct values. However when I execute ant list command I get the following message. Would you please tell me what changes that you have to make to run the application?

build.xml:133: http://localhost:8080/manager/list

Suraj, please do not post to old topics. Instead, start a new topic. And when you do, provide the exact command you are using ot run ant, the full ant output, and the target within build.xml that is giving an error. Remember to use the 'code' tags to mark the source code, and use the Preview to check the formatting before posting.

add the word text in the relevant task of build xml:

<target name="list" description="List Tomcat applications">
<list url="${tomcat.manager.url}/text"
