My Directory Structure

C:\Java\JDK -> Java 1.6
C:\Java\SDK -> JAVA EE
C:\Java\Glassfish -> Glassfish

What i did
1. Installed Java 1.6
2. installed Java EE
3. Env Variables
J2EE_HOME to C:\Java\SDK
JAVA_Home to C:\Java\JDK\bin
added C:\Java\SDK\bin;C:\Java\JDK\bin to PATH
added %J2EE_HOME%\lib\j2ee.jar to CLASSPATH
4. ran
java -Xmx256m -jar glassfish-installer-v2ur2-b04-windows.jar from its location and got installation complete.

When i run
ant -f setup.xml i get the command not recognized error...
I didnt install ant separately since it said it is optional
I havent used ant before plese help me how to get this up and running.

Other questions
1)I get command not recognized for j2ee -verbose too...is the new version installation different from the old?
2) the same error i get when i try java -version with only the JAVA_HOME and the path variable not added c:\Java\SDK\bin.

J2EE_HOME and JAVA_HOME has no effect now?

3)the Java EE said it has Glassfish in it... http://java.sun.com/javaee/downloads/index.jsp --- i got the 160MB version. Is it the same as the Glassfish i am trying to install separately?

Inspite of this errors i am able to log to he admin console

ant -f setup.xml returns me
Buildfile: setup.xml does not exist!

Buildfile: setup.xml does not exist!

Did you change directory ?

cd glassfish
ant -f setup.xml
