Hi,

I am using jdk 1.4 and Ant 1.8.0 for building Tomcat 5.5.31 on Linux.
But the build fails with the following error:

build-static:
[style] Warning: the task name <style> is deprecated. Use <xslt>
instead.
[style] Transforming into

Any solution?

    You're going to be hard pressed to find anyone that cares about building Tomcat on a JDK level that hasn't been supported by Sun/Oracle for ages.

    Why are you even bothering to build Tomcat? It's Java, so just use it.
