here is my build.xml this file I am getting the project form I am getting the complete sturcture of my project
in my local system succesfully.and using ANT only i am creating some folders(classes,jar,src).this is fine
after that when I take this build.xml file in eclipse using new->project->get existing build.xml..then i get
my complete project folder in eclipse.but the problem is as soon as i get in eclipse .inside the classes folder
it is again creating the project folders.which i dont is happning when I am taking from eclipse.
(the folders which is creating inside the classes these are those files only which i am getting from vss)

here is my build.xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project name="sonnetframwwork2"
xmlns:vss="antlibrg.apache.ant.vss" basedir="." >
<!--this file was created by Eclipse Runnable JAR Export Wizard-->
<!--ANT 1.7 is required
<property environment="env."/>
<property name="env.CLASSPATH" value=""/>
<property name="build_dir" location="src/classes/testscripts"/>
<property name="testdata" location="src/testdata"/>
<property name="main-class" location="src/testscripts/TestExecute"/>

<target name="prepare">
<vssget localPath="Project13\src"
serverPath="\\blrbg1fsr001\\Testing Practice\\Testingpractice_vss"
ssdir="C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Visual Studio\\VSS\\win32"

<path id="project.classpath">
<pathelement location="Project13/src/classes"/>
<fileset dir="Project13/src/references">
<include name="*.jar"/>
<include name="*.class"/>

<target name="create">
<mkdir dir="Project13\src"/>
<mkdir dir="Project13\src\classes"/>
<mkdir dir="Project13\src\jar"/>
<target name="compile">
<javac destdir="Project13\src\classes" debug="true" srcdir="Project13\src">
<classpath refid="project.classpath"/>
<target name="mainjar">
<jar destfile="Project13\src\jar\mainProject.jar"
<attribute name="Main-Class" value="testscripts.TestExecute"/>
<target name="jar" depends="compile">
<jar destfile="Project13\src\jar\SahiProject.jar"

<target name="run">
<java classname="testscripts.TestExecute"/>
<classpath refid="project.classpath">
