I installed Eclipse 3.0 and MyEclipse. I created the WebProject. No where i seen build.xml file.

What can i do for editing the build.xml in the Eclipse platform ?

Note : I checked Window -> Preferecnes -> Ant -> Runtime -> Home Entries and Global Entries has all the jars

You need to create the file. In WSAD, you can choose an Ant build file as a type. In Eclipse, you would have to choose a simple file and name it build.xml. I'm not sure what extra Ant editing support MyEclipse offers.

It doesn't need to offer much extra support because Eclipse includes a specialized editor for Ant build scripts (by default, it's used for files named "build.xml").
