I am not able to create war file using the 'build war' command from commad prompt.
I have a folder with just a jsp file and webInf copied into that folder.My jdk1.5 is installed in h: drive and my folder is in d: drive and my java_home is set.My claspath is set to tools.jar present in jdk1.5.
From the command prompt if i try d:example/build war ..i get the error "build is not recognised as internal or external commad".
I even tried setting the 'path' variable to tools.jar.But its giving the same error.
Please help...

I think you have some reading to do. "build" is not part of the JDK environment. You'll want to use jar to create war files.

I agree. Here's the link:
