    Hello everybody,
    I am new in Android application.
    I am facing a problem when i am going to build Android project using Ant tool.

    I have made a build.xml file and it is giving that BUILD SUCCESSFUL.
    But the AndroidManifest.xml file is not adding with the .apk file.
    For that when i am going to install the .apk file it is giving the message "AndroidManifest.xml file not found".

    I am giving the Build.xml file below.

    <?xml version="1.0" ?>
    <project name="HelloWorldCommandLine" default="package" basedir=".">
    <property name="sdk-folder" value="C:/android-sdk-windows-2" />
    <property name="android-tools" value="${sdk-folder}/tools" />

    <!-- The intermediates directory -->
    <!-- Eclipse uses "bin" for its own output, so we do the same. -->
    <!-- Use full path for output dir - FIX - BLOCK START -->
