Your version of ant is old, I’m wondering if you can update it.
The simple work-around (that costs me about 10 seconds) is to use apt-get to update it.
You’re using ant
1.8 from 2011, the newest on apt-get is ant
1.9.4, released in 2014. It seems like it contains mostly bug fixes and non-breaking changes:
# >ant -v # circle CI's default version of ant Apache Ant(TM) version 1.8.2 compiled on December 3 2011 Trying the default build file: build.xml Buildfile: build.xml does not exist! Build failed # >sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade ant #... # >ant -v # newest verstion of ant on apt-get, # still ~old but it has the feature I need Apache Ant(TM) version 1.9.3 compiled on April 8 2014 Trying the default build file: build.xml Buildfile: build.xml does not exist! Build failed
Specifically, I’m looking for the junit task to support a flag,
skipNonTests on a batch junit target, which is how we run tests.
1.8.2 doesn’t have it,
