Problems starting java application with ant

Problems starting java application with ant

Problems starting java application with ant

I have a simple HelloWorld application, which i want to start with ant. Here the ant build.xml:

<project name="test" default ="run-helloworld">
<target name="run-helloworld">
<java classname="build/HelloWorld" fork="true" />

HelloWorld.class is saved in the directory build. if i run ant, i get exceptions, listed below:

Buildfile: build.xml

     [java] java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: build/HelloWorld (wrong name: HelloW

But, if i save my HelloWorld.class in the root directory and change the ant build.xml, everything is fine:

<project name="test" default ="run-helloworld">
<target name="run-helloworld">
<java classname="HelloWorld" fork="true" />

if i run it:

Buildfile: build.xml

     [java] Hello World

Total time: 0 seconds

How i have to implement the path to my directories, that it will work? Have you some hints for me?

Thanks and greetings,
