Hello All, I'm using the ANT API inorder to connect to CVS and checkout the required files from CVS. I'm using the AbstractCvsTask class for performing the task. I created connections and set the other propoerties by making use of the set methods. Inorder to execute the CVS command I used the method execute(). When I tried to run the program I got a NULL pointer exception. Can anybody help me in finding a way out. Or please provide me any sample code in doing the above process. Thanks in advance, Narayana.
