Howdy. I wasn't sure where to put this, so I put it in the general section. Feel free to move where needed?
Ok, so I'm going through the J2EE tutorials. I'm on chapter 3 when I stumble upon a little problem. The first Web Component they had me build worked out quite fine, because it didn't have any servlets to compile. But the 2nd one, and the following one have to get compiled. I can do that manually, using "javac -CLASSPATH c:\Java\Sun\AppServer\lib\j2ee.jar C:\...\file.java." But that's quite annoying, and I'd rather just use the asant build command. What happens is the following, I enter the "asant (or just ant) build" and I get the following:
So I did "ant -projecthelp", which got me to "ant listprops". Which got me this output:
As you can see, the j2ee.home path is empty. But I've tried setting a thousand diffetenr Env Vars to make it work. I've put the /lib path into my PATH, as a separate "J2EE_Home/j2ee.home" variable, into CLASSPATH. Nothing helps, the listprops still shows it as empty. Please help?

Does the build.xml file have a property named j2ee.home defined in it above the lines you quoted? Or is it defined in a build.properties file and the properties file is defined in build.xml? Or are you importing env properties?

OMG! I love you! I was too quick looking through the build.xml file. It references a common targets.xml file where all the references are done. And that file references a build.properties file, that has the j2ee.home reference, that's empty. Thank you!!!
P.S. Name changed per request.
