Does it find the tool? When you install the application server, your path should be updated to include the AppServer/bin directory, which is where asant resides. asant then reads the build.xml file, which must exist in your working directory, invoking the target you specified in your asant command.

yes it do run(the asant tool) and write to the output Build File:build.xml,
don't know i have set a J2EE_HOME(\Sun\Creator\Sun Application Server ,JAVA_HOME(JDK1.5 directory),CLASSPATH(J2EE_Home\lib ,PATH(J2EE_HOME\bin environment variables to the directories mentioned above.
The asant tool runs fine and prints to the output Build File:build.xml it does not print anything further it just stops here(nothing more to the output except Build File:build.xml)
i have run it with this parameter:
asant create-war inside my web module directory.don't know what's wrong?

This is the contents of build.properties file :


j2ee.home=C:\\Sun\\Creator2

\\SunAppServer8j2ee.tutorial.home=d:\\j2eetutorial14sunone.home=${j2ee.

home}
admin.password.file=${j2ee.tutorial.home}/examples/common/admin-

assword.txt
admin.host=localhostadmin.user=adminadmin.port=14848

t=1880db.root=${j2ee.home}/pointbasedb.driver=com.pointbase.jdbc.jdbcUn

iversalDriverdb.host=localhostdb.port=19092db.sid=sun-appserv-

samplesdb.url=jdbc ointbase:server://${db.host}:${db.port}/${db.sid}

db.user=pbpublicdb.pwd=pbpublicurl.prop=DatabaseNameds.class=com.pointb

ase.jdbc.jdbcDataSourcedb.jvmargs=-ms16m -mx32m



when i used the asant tool with the parameter -verbose the last line in the shell window was [property] Loading d:\j2eetutorial14\examples\web\hello1\build.properties

i have set my CLASSPATH and J2EE_HOME in the system variables and set the password in the admin-password.txt file so what's wrong ?
