I am going through a spring tutorial and I'm trying to modify the appserver.home property with an absolute path value in the build.properties file so that it can find my tomcat server.

This is what I'm trying to change it to:



The original setting was appserver.home=${user.home}/server/apache-tomcat-7.0.25

The ${user.home} value is defined as: C:\Users\Melinda and because my server is not installed in this directory then I get the following error when I try to refresh my build file:

springapp C:\Users\Melinda\workspace\SpringTutorial\springapp\"C:\server\apache-tomcat-7.0.25"\lib does not exist.

I'm sure I'm doing something stupid.

Any help/direction would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Sorry guys. I just found another post that resolved my issue. In the build.xml file the following classname is deprecated:

<taskdef name="install" classname="org.apache.catalina.ant.DeployTask">
<classpath refid="catalina-ant-classpath"/>
</taskdef>

The classname needed to be corrected to: "org.apache.catalina.ant.DeployTask"

Thanks anyway. Sorry for the post.

That is two times the same: org.apache.catalina.ant.DeployTask ?

Sorry, Jan. The initial post should have stated:

org.apache.catalina.ant.InstallTask and then correct with

org.apache.catalina.ant.DeployTask

My apologies for my confusing post. Regards.
