Testing using ANT

The build.file I use for the example application is as follows. The compilation goes thru, but not the testing.

Could you please help? The message is just Build successful.

The problem most people have is that they have to tell Ant where the JUnit jar is, since it doesn't come in automatically. But I think that's supposed to give an exception.

Try ant with the "-v" option: "ant -v test" and see if it tells you anything more.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

Thanks Tim. After using -v option I get the following message.
