JDEE and Ant

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I've got JDEE 2.3.4 and Apache Ant 1.5. The problem I was having was that I'd get this error message whenever I tried to do C-c C-v C-b (i.e. build my project using ant):

ant -buildfile 'c:/Tools/src/spiderutil/build.xml' -emacs
Buildfile: 'c:\Tools\src\spiderutil\build.xml' does not exist!
Build failed

Compilation finished at Tue Dec 07 11:22:24

Anyhow, after some poking around, I discovered this post (http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.jdee/3910/match=+buildfile+exist) which helped me fix my issue. I went into jde-ant.el and removed two instances of "delimiter" and now everything works super duper.
