Hi,

I am building a project using only 1 file to test for Ant.

This is my code:



But i don't see any output in the director or even directory created.

Here is successful build output:

Buildfile: C:\Workspace_log4j\testLog4j\build.xml
BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 63 milliseconds


Also i am attaching the directory structure of the Project.

What target are you running? I don't see any default target in your build file. Also the output you posted is just the last couple of lines. Please post the rest of the relevant output.

So, what target are you running? Maybe try running a target. Or setting a default target.

There is no default target in ant and you have not specified one in the <project> statement, so if you do not specify a target on the command line then ant will do nothing. And as it reported, is was successful at doing nothing.

Please UseCodeTags when posting code or configuration. Unformatted code and configuration is unnecessarily difficult to read.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
