Subject RE: NetBeans target "run" to .bat file

To run an ant build file, you need ant. If the users are on your
network, and have access to some of the same shared drives as you, then
you could put ant on a shared drive and run it from a wrapper script
(.bat) that sets up ANT_HOME, JAVA_HOME, etc.

Why? You have a working ANT build file. Why can't you install ANT
where required? Maybe you could provide a batch file that checks for
the existence of ANT and installs it as required?

Otherwise, I'd suggest just using your shell (cmd.exe) to build up the
correct classpath, and then create a batch file from that.
