Build Failed

After running this ANT (for RMI), I came across an Error "Build Failed : Java Returned 1"

I can't understand it. Please can anyone help me.

Sourse code:


<target name="compile">
<javac srcdir="D:\Practise\RMI">
<include name=""/>
<include name=""/>

<target name="stub" depends="compile">
<rmic classname="myRMIImpl" base="D:\Practise\RMI"/>

<target name="background" depends="stub">
<exec executable="cmd" spawn="true">
<arg line="/c start rmiregistry" />

<target name="RunServer" depends="background">
<jar destfile="D:\Practise\RMI\myRMIServer.jar"
<attribute name="Main-Class" value="myRMIServer"/>

<java jar="D:\Practise\RMI\myRMIServer.jar" fork="true" failonerror="true" >
<pathelement location="D:\Practise\RMI\" />
<pathelement path="myRMIImpl_Skel.class, myRMIImpl_Stub.class," />
<echo message = "Server Running --- Waiting for Client Request " />

Was it the java element in the RunServer target that threw the exception? The contents of the classpath element looks wrong in there - it should point at directories or JAR files, not at specific classes... besides - it looks like you are running from "myRMIServer.jar" directly - if you aren't using any classes outside of this JAR or the default Java classes that come with the JDK - you shouldn't need to set the classpath anyway.

Also, usually there is more information about why the build failed... that would help, too, if this doesn't fix your problem...

I agree. Here's the link:
