Im thinking a shell to ant would be easier - the first time i ran with
the techo it spent over an hour downloading packages, I kept thinking
I had not properly set the plugin up properly - finally I left it to
run and it finished. But gave me a zip with only the configuration
files and it did not compile the source code. But if I changed the
packaging to "jar" the source would compile.

Ill talk to the other list and see if I am looking at the right thing.
