Sorry to hear you are sick. Anyway, I was never able to get the Ant
build file to work from Eclipse. If you run Ant from the command line
it seems to work just fine. It must be something with the way it's
setup in Eclipse as you mentioned. I've just been having Eclipse
build the project automatically and haven't had any problems with that
