I was following this tutorial to try Duke's Bank Application on JBoss4.
After downloading & unzipping j2ee-1_4-doc-tutorial_7.zip I copied examples folder into ${jboss.home}/server/myconfig. Then changed build.properties to set jboss.home path as "C:\JBoss4".
And ran following ANT command: C:\JBoss4\server\myconfig\examples\bank>ant -f build.xml compile.

The build fails with java.lang.NullPointerException showing a window popup dialog saying 

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
Error while setting up environment for the application. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
Close   Ignore   

Even after clicking on Ignore the build fails.

I ensured there is no problem in build.properties. I ran each command (i.e. variable setting) one by one on command prompt & it came out all fine.

I have never faced this error before.
Please help.
