I have a web service provider created with eclipse. This module is a dynamic web project that have the facets:

CXF 2.x Web Services
Dynamic Web Module
Java
I want now to build this project using makefile in Linux to generate .class files and then i 'll generate the corresponding wsdl file.

Is there a way to do that without using maven or Ant ??

Thanks in advance

I'm fairly certain that all those steps can be run via a makefile, although if I wanted to avoid Ant/Maven, I'd rather write a shell script for this. Makefiles are more of a hindrance than a help for Java development IMO.

But before we get into specifics, tell us why you want to avoid Ant and Maven.

Hi Ulf, thanks for reply,i developed my web service provider (Dynamic web project using Eclipse), i'm pressed with time and i an looking for a suitable and quick solution.

thus creating new project and the various configurations to implement will take me time and i'm not too familiar with Ant so far

I think my advice would be: get up to speed with Ant :-) You will need to learn it (or something similar) anyway, and it's much more widely applicable knowledge than makefiles and shell scripts.

Aren't there options in Eclipse to export the project as either an Ant or Maven build ?
