[ros-users] Problem in wiki page rosjava/Build

I'm trying to follow the instructions on
http://www.ros.org/wiki/rosjava/Build. I installed ros electric and
rosjava-core using the ros Ubuntu repository. In the wiki page
(http://www.ros.org/wiki/rosjava/Build), step 3 "Building your ROS
package", I get a

$ rosmake myproject
ros.properties is missing.  Please type 'rosmake' first

I can confirm the file ros.properties exists.
However, the build.xml file contains the line:

    <fail unless="ros.compile.classpath" message="ros.properties is
missing.  Please type 'rosmake' first "/>

I think this is the line which fails because the ros.properties file
does not define ros.compile.classpath. The file defines a lot of other
variables though (such as ros.classpath).

Can you please help me?
