Subject RE: webpshere application server 6 , ant and versions of ant
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2005 08:45:48 GMT
Thanks Jeffrey.
So my question will be rather simple: Are scripts written in standard ant  1.6.5 compatible
with the ant bundled with WAS 6?(i am using <macrodef> and so on..)

IIRC yes, but good luck finding all the classes that you need to make the 
WAS-specific tasks work :-)

Do you mean the version that we used to build WAS 6.0 or the version that 
ships with WAS 6.0? If you meant the former we used a custom build 1.5.4 
with some selected patches from the 1.6 branch, plus our own custom 
extensions. If you meant the later, if you run "ws_ant -version" it should 
tell you, but IIRC it's 1.5.4.
