Problems deploying Activiti

I am just trying to setup my eclipse IDE with the activiti 5-6 distribution but I am having some problems. I have downloaded the distribution from subversion and solved all dependencies with Maven but right now I do not know how to go on…

I want to deploy the activity engine. I guess I should execute "ant clean distro" in order to get the distribution compiled and then execute one of the script (i.e. ant demo.start) that will run up the database, Tomcat and all the stuff. Am I right? Is this a good approach? When I execute this command I get an error:
D:\adrian\ActivitiWorkspace\activiti-5.6\userguide\build.xml:103: javax.xml.tran
sform.TransformerException: java.lang.NullPointerException

I have also executed "mvn -Pcheck clean install" and everything is ok.

I know it is a basic question but I have not found detail information about this or maybe I am misunderstanding the information in the developers guide.

Finally, if I want to interact with Activiti from a java standalone app, I guess I have to add to the build path the activiti.jar. Is this correct?

Thank you very much. Regards,
