See: NotACodeMill

What kind of app are you building? EJB JAR? Web app? EAR? Other?

What do you have so far in your Ant script?

You'll also want to decide if you really want to do this. The alternative is to create an EAR in Ant and then deploy using a jacl/jython script.

I want to build ERA file for my application and deplot the EAR into websphere 7. I have not written any ant script for this till now. Wanted to know how to write the ant script (setting the classpath etc) specifically for websphere 7
