Hi

Thats a pretty loaded question. I don't wnat to come off flipant but I
would start with some very basic steps.

First, Im not familiar with Websphere so I cant help you much there.

ANT is pretty flexable and will certainly run under Windows.

I would go to the ANT site, down load and install it per the instructions.

My experience with ANT has been totaly PC based systems. You can run ANT
from a command window or batch files.

Early on I wanted a nice XML editor to write the scripts in and chose XML
Spy which does a fine job.

Later on I was working in VAJ (Visual Age for Java) and found a bit of a
kludgy but functionl plug in that allowed me run ANT in the development
envornment.

Now I use Eclipse and ANT and the editor come packaged with it in a very
slick package.

Perhaps websphere has simlar functionality?

Anyways, once you get it installed, write a simple script or two from the
many examples in the documentation.

Copy some files, move some files, delete some files. Do the same with
directories.

Work with the exec function that allows you to run virtually any
application. This should take care of your compiling if nothing else will.

Any application that can be run from a command line can be run from ANT
including any parameters you need to pass to it.

On a network, if you can map a drive or location, you can refrence it in
ANT.

The decision makeing or branching in ANT is a bit weak but where there is a
will, there is a way.

With a bit of practiice you can do pretty much any thing you need to to
complete a build.

After about 7 years of working with ANT, my builds are almost one "click"
from repository to CD includng the installation.

Good Luck

Dear All,

Can some someone tell me the best way to get started on ANT under Windows I
have websphere Studio - is that possible to compile some script to get
familiar with the environment, or do I have to go LINUX. Not that Im not
familiar but just dont feel like going from machine to machine, but have it
all running on my labtop.

Any help is appreciated.
- Frank
