I have downloaded and installed J2EE, JSDK and ANT, I have also set the environment variable
I have also set the path for J2EE and ANT
SET pat=c:\jdk1.3\bin;c:\j2eesdk1.2.1\bin;c:\ant\bin
I have also set the classpath for ANT
SET classpath=c:\ant\lib\ant.jar;c:\ant\lib\parser.jar;
My deploymet tool is working on deploytool
but when I try to compile using ANT it is not working...
it gives
Error : Could not find a JVM
Pls. help

well, if you copies/pasted this line exactly:
SET pat=c:\jdk1.3\bin;c:\j2eesdk1.2.1\bin;c:\ant\bin
it's a typo. should be:
SET path=c:\jdk1.3\bin;c:\j2eesdk1.2.1\bin;c:\ant\bin
also ant requires ant.jar;jaxp.jar;parser.jar (use the ant.bat file in c:\ant\bin to set this up)
not sure about deploytool, but if you can run 'ant' from a command window, the problem is with deploytool.
I agree. Here's the link:
