The version of Ant that ships with Eclipse Kepler (4.3) does not correctly handle Java 8™. This is because Java 8™ support was added to Apache Ant for version 1.9.1 and the version available in Eclipse Kepler is 1.8.4.
There are two workarounds:
- Wait for the 1.9.1 update to Eclipse - to be applied at the start of Luna (bug 395421)
- Point Eclipse at the new version of Ant. This help topic describes how to do so.
