first of all thanks for the information

I tried to load antx libraries and it did worked, BUT while calculating the
duration its giving me an error as :

Unable to convert 'now' to time duration.
compile took -now

Here is my code:

<target name="usage" description="Displays a list of valid targets">
       <assign var="time" value="now"/>
       <copyproperty name="usage.start" variable="time"
transform="datetime"/>
       <echo level="info" message="usage started ${usage.start}"/>

       <antcall target="usage:default"/>

       <assign var="time" value="now"/>
       <copyproperty name="compile.duration" variable="time"
transform="duration"/>

       <echo level="info" message="compile took ${compile.duration}"/>
   </target>

Is there any thing I have missed.

THanks again
