WSAD and ANT

Sorry, I am new to WSAD.

Meanwhile, I have to build my application using ANT in a DOS window as follows:

C:\S2-TF\ant>setAntHome
C:\S2-TF\tfbuild>ant clean -all
C:\S2-TF\tfbuild>ant

and my setAntHome.bat file looks like:

There must be a way to run ANT to build my applications in WSAD and I do not have to open a DOS window.

Would you help in showing me how to configure WSAD to do it? Thanks.

In WSAD, go to Window menu, click showView and select ant. You should see ant view to your right. Click on the icon with ant+ sign and add your build file. After that everything else would be straight forward.

Thanks for your reply.

In WSAD, I can see the 'plus' signs (add build file) in the Ant view.

My build file is under the 'C:\S2-TF\tfbuild' directory.

Do I also have to configure WSAD to set JAVA_HOME, set ANT_HOME, and set PATH? Because I have to run the setAntHome.bat (see below) before I run the Ant. How do I configure WSAD about the JAVA_HOME, ANT_HOME, and PATH?

Not necessary. I guess since WSAD is build on eclipse should have inbuilt ant in it. You need to simply add your build.xml file to some directory in your WSAD workspace and add it in your ant view. You should be good to go from there without setting any classpaths or running batch files.

Thanks
