I know nothng about wl tasks, which come from BEA, so out of my scope.

What ant does have is a <get> task, and the <socket> and <http> 
conditions. You can do some low level lookups for sockets and for 
functional app servers

    <not><socket server="localhost" port="7001" /></not>
  Port 7001 is closed. Either the application is not running, or a 
firewall is in the way

Its not as intimate as the weblogic example, but it may work, and you 
can give good diagnostics messages
