Any reason not to upgrade? 1.6.5 is the current version, and has been
for close to a year.

Why not check the build, then package the EAR, from within ant? My
experience has been that if you can script it in shell, you can probably
also script it in ant, and make it platform independent.

Well, you can check the build failed, using the ant return code, but
getting ant to call your EAR build is likely to be easier - let me known
if you need any help with this.
