Hi,

I've been generating build.xml files for my features from Plugin Tools->Create Ant Build file with many versions of eclipse and versions of ant. Now when I go to generate a build.xml in the same workspace where it used to work, I get the error: "Could not find valid manifest file to create ant build file." I've tried this with eclipse 3.7 and eclipse 4.3 and get the same result. I used to routinely generate build.xml for all the features in my project with eclipse 3.7. What could have changed? Thanks! Jane

I am trying to configure a headless build for my feature (https://wiki.eclipse.org/PDE/User_Guide#Automated_building_of_Features). I have generated ant build files for my plugins (https://wiki.eclipse.org/PDE/User_Guide#Generating_Ant_scripts), but when I try to do the same for the feature, I get the same error as Jane. Features do not appear to have manifest files so why is it required? If I try without a build.xml file in my feature directory, it yields the expected FileNotFoundException. I am new to PDE development and I am using Kepler SR 1 Build id: 20130919-0819.
