Does the ws ant task really needs to be run thru the ws_ant.bat?
I'm getting error running my ant script on ws ant task targets if I directly use the ant command.
Am I missing something here?

If ws = WebSphere, the answer is yes. That bat file sets numerous configuration items.

yes... and not only that.... even if you use Apache ANT you should still use ws_ant to launch your ant tasks...
