Hey Guys,
i am currently involving in a servelet project (RendreX). i want to install apachi ant as a prerequirement. i am using windows 2003 server. I already downloded latest ant version and apache tomcat4.0. Also i have set all the class path,ANT-HOME(C:\ANT) and other relevent paths. But when i run ant command in the command prompt(C:\ANT>ant)will generate error state that "build.xml" file can't be found. Have i done any wrong thing here?
It would be greatly appriciated if u can send me some advice to over come this problem.

Best Regards

you need to add the ant_home/bin to your path, cd to the directory containing the build.xml file, then call 'ant' there.

Have you been through ant manual, it should be in your download bundle.
These are the online version for Running Ant
