yeah, I am sure the version which I am using is 6.1 final relesse. I have updated all patchs for 6.1.
I think the plugin-depent version is newer than the versio provied by nb 6.1.
I have tried on windows XP and Fedora 9 , and encountered the same problem.

1.2 removes dependency on Ant

I've just uploaded 1.2 version of this plugin which simply removes the dependency on the Ant module, which wasn't needed in the first place. Feel free to try it again and leave a message with the results.

Are you sure you are using 6.1?

Are you sure you are using 6.1? I.e. the final release of it, from netbeans.org? And not some development build or milestone or something? Sorry, no subversion repo yet, will be there in the coming weeks.

Would it be possible for you to try the plugin without the patches?

The only difference between my setup and yours seems to be the patches. Could you try and install the plugin again, without the patches and other things you might have added on top of the 6.1 release?
