Hi, all,

I'm currently writing a JavaFX program on Eclipse. I have the program written, and it's running properly in Eclipse, but I'm having trouble creating the Ant script to build it. I'm using a couple of external jars (xstream, log4j), and when I run the jar, it throws exceptions, saying it can't find classes that should be in the external jars.

This is my fx:jar task:


Does anyone have any suggestions?
