Subject RE: webpshere application server 6 , ant and versions of ant
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2005 08:43:29 GMT
Thanks for your reply.
To satisafy your curiosity: all my scripts are written in ant 1.6.5 and i would like to be
sure that they will be compatible with WAS 6 if i should use the ant bundled with it.
The problem is that we did not yet acquired the WAS, so i still cannot play, try etc..

Best way to continue using the standard ant, while still having access
to the was specific tasks, would be to find the was specific task
classes and create a jar that contains only those classes to include in
you standard ant. In WebSphere 5, these classes are already packaged in
such way that you could just copy $WAS_HOME/lib/wsanttasks.jar to
$ANT_HOME/lib/ and then add some taskdefs to your build file (not sure
what these should be).

Doesn't matter.

IBM may be able to provide more information about the taskdefs needed in
your build.xml. It looks like the ant included in WAS uses an IBM
launcher, which probably takes care of the custom WAS taskdefs. 

I'm curious...Why not just use the ant that IBM provides?
