When I run the build.xml file , it gives an error stating:

C:\workspace\Work\build.xml:46: Problem: failed to create task or type wscompile
Cause: The name is undefined.
Action: Check the spelling.
Action: Check that any custom tasks/types have been declared.

Why doesn't the core wscompile task get recognised???

An alaternative is to use the wscompile task that comes with, for instance, GlassFish. The example below is for wsgen, but wscompile is used in a similar fashion:
