First: please keep on the list (as long as you dont want to provide sensible
data ;)
Other people could be interesting in this problem (and its solution) too.

Second: this is more a CS related question than an Ant one .... but because I
just had
the same problem two weeks ago, I could provide the solution :-)))

* Create a "checkstyle" directory under your Ant installation ( ${ant.home}
/checkstyle will
 now point to this)
* Put the checkstyle-all-4.3.jar (containing standard checks), checkstyle
 (containing J2EE checks) and your own checks into that directory.
* Put also your customized rule.xml and the checkstyle.xsl's into that

Start Ant with "-lib %ANT_HOME%\checkstyle".
For our own Ant distribution I renamed ant.bat to and created a new
in ANT_HOME\bin:
 @(protected) off
 call -lib %~dp0..\checkstyle %*

So this target should work:
<target name="checkstyle">
   <mkdir dir="${}"/>
       <fileset dir="${java.dir}" includes="**/*.java"/>
       <fileset dir="${junit.dir}" includes="**/*.java"/>
       <formatter type="xml" tofile="${}/checkstyle_report.xml"/>

ant.home  : automatically set by Ant; points to Ant's install location
java.dir  : points to the directory containing the java program sources
junit.dir : points to the directory containing the junit test cases (sources) : where to generate the cs-reports into?

  Subject: AW: checkstyle-ant
  <checkstyle> generates a xml based report.
  This report should be converted to HTML by the <style> task via XSLT
  The path to the xsl as you have defined must be "checkstyle.xsl" directly
under your projects root directory (if you havent specified the <project
  I think you are missing this file. This xsl is part of the CS-distro. Have a
look into the zip and extract the file to your project (e.g. "src/etc
