  Creating a Web Application with Ant and Tomcat 4

Hi,


This is by far the best step by step guide to those who are new to web apps deployment (like me).


One problem I have is I can't get it to build properly ...!!! When I run "ant install" command it starts to build but FAILS and gives me a error message


"C:\Addressbook\build.xml:46: C:\Program FilesApache GroupTomcat 4.1\common\lib n
ot found."


As you noticed there is no forward slash "\" between directories. I don't know why there is no "\" between Program Files and Apache Group Directory.


Can anyone tell me where did I messed up???


Thanks!!!

    In your build.properties file make sure you double escape your path separators.
    C:\tomcat\common\lib should be C:\\tomcat\\common\\lib.

    That's why you didn't get a slash in the error message, Ant read it as an escape character.
