I am trying to do the following in my ant build file.
Run my junit tests based on if the junit.error property is set - I need to run another ant task.
I need to check for both pass an failure of the tests.

I have tried the following with in my target

it does not print the statement.

I get an error saying
C:\apps\workspace-next13.3\CompositePageService\build.xml:418: Problem: failed to create task or type if
Cause: The name is undefined.

I have tried.
<if name="junit.error" value="true">
<echo> there has been a failure </echo>
however if there is no failure the variable may not be set.
Can someone please help with the tags that should be set.

Welcome to CodeRanch! I edited your post to add code tags - this makes it easier to read.

Your code looks fine. It uses the if tag from the ant contrib library. Have you added a taskdef tag to your Ant build to include it?
