Ant deploy not working

Hi,

I am trying to deploy an application (named springapp) on Apache by using ANT build files. I followed the tutorial exactly and wrote the build.xml and build.properties files. The "ant" command and the "ant deploy" command did not throw any errors. But "ant list" command does not list my application and I could not view my "index.jsp" page in the website. Can any one help me with this ?

E:\apps\Eclipse32\Workspacenew\springapp>ant
Buildfile: E:\apps\Eclipse32\Workspacenew\springapp\build.xml

usage:
[echo]
[echo] springapp build file
[echo] -----------------------------------
[echo]
[echo] Available targets are:
[echo]
[echo] build --> Build the application
[echo] deploy --> Deploy application as directory
[echo] deploywar --> Deploy application as a WAR file
[echo] install --> Install application in Tomcat
[echo] reload --> Reload application in Tomcat
[echo] start --> Start Tomcat application
[echo] stop --> Stop Tomcat application
[echo] list --> List Tomcat applications
[echo]

Hi all,

I sorted out the problem myself. I realised that there have been some unnessary files in my springapp folder in the webapps directory of apache. I deleted everything and entered ant, ant deploy commands again and it worked !
