I've stumbled upon, played around with, and discussed a problem that has
turned out to be a bug in Eclipse's ant implementation. I don't mind
making the Bugzilla entry and I can log in, begin creating it, but I
just don't know which Eclipse component to lodge it against.

Thanks for your suggestion,

Russ

Here's the substance:

It concerns being able to ant-contrib into the mix for a build.xml and
the manifestation of the problem is a nasty, ugly error message in the
Ant view. The build.xml nevertheless works fine in Eclipse just as it
does from command-line ant.

<!-- Work-around: uncomment the following dummy property definition:
<property name="eclipse_bug"
value="make Eclipse not complain about pulling in ant-contrib" />
-->

<taskdef resource="net/sf/antcontrib/antcontrib.properties">
<classpath>
<pathelement location="${ant.library.dir}/ant-contrib-1.0b3.jar" />
</classpath>
</taskdef>

It doesn't matter whether the ant-contrib JAR is placed local to the
project (how I've decided to do it) or dropped into your formal ant
download/installation (which I also tried and that is depicted in this
example).

An illustration of the Ant view can be had at:

Sorry, the above link doesn't work. It's Platform Ant. Log in to
bugzilla and then
