Having some problems with configuring junit 4 in ant 1.7.
This is how the target looks like:

This is the exception:

Is there something specific i need to think about when using these things?
Have "wasted" an entire work day trying to figure this out.

Have you read the documentation? It explicitly states that the name attribute is a classname, not a file name. The fact that you're getting a ClassNotFoundException should also be a clue.

The docs also explain what to do if you want to run several tests (namely, use the <batchtest> tag).

The test name attribute expects a Java class.
If you look at the examples, you can see that a valid classname like my.test.TestCase is expected.

You are passing C:\client\test\AllTests.*
That is not a valid Java class. That is a dos filemask.

To do what you want to do, please have a look at the batchtest example found on the same link given above.
