Have you tried using the wldeploy ant task? I�m not sure if it ships with your old version of WebLogic, but you can at least try to find out. wldeploy tool on the other hand, is an Ant version of the weblogic.Deployer class. You can use this class to perform any deployment tasks, using basic command lines. Some projects provide a set of shell scripts that runs:
without using Ant. I�m not sure how these Ant deployment tasks work, but for sure I�ll tell you that weblogic specific tools will do the job quite nicely (although far from being perfect). WebLogic Builder is another tool you might use, but I�m pretty sure it doesn�t ship with Weblogic 5� Only few ideas. Regards.
