MyEclipse can't run ant build files

I'm using MyEclipse version 7. I can only invoke ant build scripts via Run As if the scripts are named 'build.xml'.

If I look at the build file properties, then for build.xml the type is shown as: "File (Ant Buildfile)".
For other (valid) ant files the file type is shown as: "File (JBoss Tools XML)".

I've had a good look around the variou ant related preferences but can't
find any settings that might be causing this. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Cheers, Andy W.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
