i have a web application that i want to build in netbeans IDE , this existing project has a build file and i want to build the enviroment using this build file and the ant build ,also i want to use glassfish v3 as my application server , so i used the netbeans wizard to build this web application from existing source but it always give me this error when i tey to clean and build the application "please JBOSS_HOME" , so it seems that the build file is built to deploy under jboss ... what should i do "i am also new to Ant build files "

May be in your project setting the application is set to JBOSS . Change it to Glassfish and then try .

thank you ani for your reply

so what you mea, i should replace the JBOSS_HOME property to GLASSFISH_HOME ... i will show you a snipet of the build.xml file

<project name="AmpEP" default="build">

<property environment="env"/>
<property name="jboss_home" value="${env.JBOSS_HOME}" />
<property name="sun_jdk_root" value="${env.JAVA_HOME}"/>
<target name="init">
<condition property="jboss_home_set">
<available file="${jboss_home}" />
<condition property="java_home_set">
<available file="${sun_jdk_root}" />
<fail unless="jboss_home_set" message="Please set JBOSS_HOME to a valid location in your environment"/>
<fail unless="java_home_set" message="Please set JAVA_HOME to a valid location in your environment"/>

<property name="dist" location="dist"/>
<property name="ear" location="ear"/>
<property name="extlib" location="lib"/>
<property name="Build-status" value="Development"/>
<property name="exploded" location="ampep-exploded"/>

thank you ani ...

As a start yes you'll need to change the various Jboss values to glassfish.

Actually a slightly better solution would be to pass in which application server you were targeting as a -D parameter on the command line (or read from a properties file). That way you could have both the Jboss and the glassfish configuration and simply call the one you wanted.
