Ant script variables within WebSphere

Hello All,

I'm writing an Ant script to run within WebSphere WSAD 5.1. I notice that the variables described in the WebSphere help documentation regarding External Tools are not being loaded at Ant run time, although the variable ${basedir} *IS* being loaded.

For example, in the Ant script I have:

<echo message="${workspace_loc}"/>
<echo message="${project_loc}"/>
<echo message="${container_loc}"/>
<echo message="${resource_loc}"/>
<echo message="${project_path}"/>
<echo message="${container_path}"/>

<echo message="${basedir}"/>
<echo message="${}"/>

Here's the result:

[echo] ${workspace_loc} (these aren't correct)
[echo] ${project_loc}
[echo] ${container_loc}
[echo] ${resource_loc}
[echo] ${project_path}
[echo] ${container_path}

[echo] C:\projects\Webdisclosure (These last two ARE correct)
[echo] IBM J9SE VM

Does anyone know why the 6 variables above aren't being loaded at run time by WebSphere prior to invoking Ant? Do I have something mis-configured?

It's exactly the same and completely different as this tiny ad:
