I'm not using FOP\lib\ant.jar to integrate to ant (at least I don't
think I am).  Could it be a problem to put that jar there?
I put a copy of the jar in the lib folder (maybe I need it in a
different folder?) to resolve imports to compile.
I'm using the Eclipse ant plugin to run the ant build.
FOP requires ant such as package org.apache.fop.tools.anttasks class
FileCompare import org.apache.tools.ant.BuildException.

If I try to download the ant source and create a project to reference
for fop to validate these imports, I have to setup it's build path which
requires bcel, apache commons, log4j, javax.mail, netrexx,
javax.media.jai, jai.codec, jdepend, etc.
I'll see if there's an easier way.

the fop project it just hangs on this task.

I don't think copying ant.jar into FOP\lib is the correct way to
integrate with Ant. Most people I know install ant somewhere on their
harddisk and then add ant/bin directory into the PATH environment
variable. Then to build FOP you invoke Ant from the FOP root directory
and Ant finds build.xml and runs the build. There's a lot more to Ant
than ant.jar

change the build.xml. Basically, you download the junit jar from and add
it to the lib folder in your ant file and that will ensure that you can
run junit with ant with any project (not just FOP). You'll also need to
add the bin folder to your PATH (if you already haven't).
