I understand that many of the people on this list
are using "native ant"
without using WSAD (Studio Application Developer)
in its headless or GUI mode.
That said, several years ago I wrote the Developers
Domain articles on how
to use WSAD 'headless' to do Ant builds (ejbDeploy,
At that time it was just for 'interest' and was not
related to my job, but
it was widely read and remains widely used for WSAD
Ant builds (and all
of those initial AntTasks have since been incorporated
directly into WSAD).
I have a new job at IBM and am responsible for enhancing
the WSAD ability
to do automated (unattended) production builds, and
I know we need an 'importProject' AntTask, and can
envision several others.
BUT, I would rather get real requirements from current
- This includes WSAD AntTask additions, and WAS AntTask
= Including running the WAS AntTasks inside
- It also includes Ant callable JACL/Jython scripts
for common tasks
= for example, setting WAS StartWeight or ClassloaderMode
So, please reply to this note, and CC me directly,
with your requirements.
Also, try to separate "Required" from "Desirable"
