Subject AW: Question: List
Date Fri, 17 Jun 2005 06:54:41 GMT
We have a build.bat in our source distro, but this only for building Ant itself.
For building your own projects you dont need that file. Just start Ant with your buildfile
  ProjectDir> ant -f myBuildFile.xml
or with common buildfile name build.xml
  ProjectDir> ant

Why do you think you need that?
