Please use the EMF newsgroup to ask about EMF's Ant tasks.

I'm not sure what to say about the failures. EMF's Ant tasks do require
installing the tasks and Eclipse in order to work properly, but I have
no idea how Maven invokes ant tasks differently from Eclipse... It just
sounds like you've not installed the tasks properly...
