Websphere's ant from Maven.

I am trying to invoke Websphere Application Server(WAS) specific
. Websphere ships with it's own ant distribution that is packed with the signed jars and other classpath elements. I've tried the following:
1) third party plugin (
), but this does not produce the right source files
2) tried maven-antrun plugin, does not work as we need to use WAS version of ant.
I can manually invoke the WAS ant distribution with an ant build.xml file(comes as ws_ant.bat for windows and ws_ant.sh for unix), but is there a way to invoke this from Maven?

I can think of two ways:
1) Maven provides the ability to run Ant tasks
2) Maven provides the ability to run a command line task
I think you'll have more luck with the second because it will use WebSphere's special Ant contexts.
