As an FYI, because this may not help you(but it's always nice to have
options), 
If you're writing your applications with IBM's Rational Application
Developer, you can launch it "headless" and have it run ant scripts. 

IBM supplies their own ant tasks for compiling projects and exporting
ears and the like. I'm not sure if you can run them outside of RAD or
not, though.

/com.ibm.etools.j2eeapp.doc/topics/tantproj.html

That will get you in the general area. 

We actually use this for all of our autobuilds, though somewhat heavily
customized. Works nicely.

Cory
