I'm new to J2EE environment and working on an example given in J2EE1.4 online tutorial. I did exactly as mentioned in the document. I have a directory structure C:\ Projects ConverterApp ConverterApp.ear src Converter.java ConverterHome.java ConverterBean.java
Now as mentioned in the document, I tried to run asant utility from c:\projects\ConverterApp>asant build
Buildfile: build.xml does not exist! Build failed
is what getting displayed. Is there anything I messed up here? Please let me know the solution as I'm eagerly waiting for my first J2EE to run .
Try to run the asant in the directory where build.xml is located and don't forget to set the j2ee.jar in your classpath.

Thanks for the information. I'm a very new into J2EE world, and really not sure what a build.xml is all about. I was under impression that asant would build build.xml for me. What is build.xml and how do we generate one? Is there any tool to generate build.xml for us.
