Subject RE: webpshere application server 6 , ant and versions of ant
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2005 08:16:00 GMT
Thanks for your answer Jeffrey.
Another point: so can you imagine a scenario where ant 1.6.5 is used but with  websphere tasks

library(*) included in its path?
My problem is that i use ant for building  java and non-java code, and was concerns only the
fist part...

Well, as I said before I'm pretty sure that WAS 6.0 bundles Ant 1.5.4; you 
should be able to confirm that by running "ws_ant -version".

Assuming that I'm correct then the answer would be no: Ant 1.5.4 can't run 
build files that are written to work with 1.6.5, thus the version of Ant 
bundled with WAS 6.0 can't either.
