Hi,
I'm using WSAD 4.03 as the web development tool. Is there a tool in WSAD to generate the Ant build script for my Web project?
Is it true that the Ant build script will be used on App Server to build the project?
Thanks,
Jenny

No you must create the ant script in order to do the build. You can do quite a bit more than build an app with ant, it should be noted. You can use WSAD to run the script by right clicking on the xml file that you create and selecting run ant.

It can be the war file...or a jar file or an ear file or it can perform any number of functions. Here are some links:
