I just hope eomeone has some experience with

I downloaded the ant-jar file from sourceforge here and followed the documentation.
I have the following tasks

the properties are all valid in the whole build file.
My problem is that i always get

Problem: failed to create task or type org.unintelligible.antjnlpwar:jnlpwar
Cause: The name is undefined.
Action: Check the spelling.
Action: Check that any custom tasks/types have been declared.
Action: Check that any <presetdef>/<macrodef> declarations have taken place.
No types or tasks have been defined in this namespace yete following error:

The xmlns:jw="org.unintelligible.antjnlpwar" is in the project tag.

I already tried to include also the deps jar, but with the same problem.

What do I miss ?

Disclaimer: I've not used this project and I've not gone and looked up their documentation.

Usually in ANT it means it can't find the Task in a JAR on the ANT CLASSPATH. A quick fix is to place the jar file in the ANT_HOME/lib directory.
