taskdef class com.intellij.ant.Javac2 cannot be found

I am trying to build using ant from Intellij Maia 94.539 build (Mac OS 10.6) and receiving the above error.  This error has been noted before and I am surprised to see it again.

Here is an excerpt from the Intellij-created ant file.

  <property name="javac2.home" value="${idea.home}/lib"/>
  <path id="javac2.classpath">
    <pathelement location="${javac2.home}/javac2.jar"/>
    <pathelement location="${javac2.home}/jdom.jar"/>
    <pathelement location="${javac2.home}/asm.jar"/>
    <pathelement location="${javac2.home}/asm-commons.jar"/>
  </path>
  <taskdef name="javac2" classname="com.intellij.ant.Javac2" classpathref="javac2.classpath"/>


And here is the stack trace and error is below.  Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Sean

Hi.

Is ${idea.home} property defined?

Alexander.

Thanks.  That was the problem.  In the dialog for creating an ant build file, there is a checkbox to define ${idea.home} based on the current instantiation of IntelliJ.  If that box is not checked, the error occurs.  It is obvious in retrospect.

I've ticked that checkbox but I still get

ant.xml:86: taskdef class com.intellij.ant.Javac2 cannot be found

Do I need to do something about this?

"requires "javac2" and task from idea"

Hello.

What is your IDEA version?

Alexander.

Found it, it only worked if I didn't use folders like this


<property file="suite.properties"/>

instead of this:

<property file="ant/suite.properties"/>

Everything looks fine now but I'm getting an error
