First a bit of business: On your way in, you may have missed that JavaRanch has a policy on screen names, and yours does not conform to it. We take this policy seriously, so please adjust it here.
As to your question, the Axis documentation includes a few pages about the Ant tasks. Give those a look, and let us know if it helped. Follow-up questions might get a quicker answer in the Web Services forum. [ December 03, 2005: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
