Its an IDE like Eclipse we need to plug in Websphere 6.1 to IBM Websphere AST.I tried setting all the variable slike PATH, CLASSPATH, HANT_HONMe and JAVA_HOME

set PATH=C:\Program Files\IBM WAS ASTV6.1\eclipse\plugins\org.apache.ant_1.6.5\bin;%PATH%;

set ANT_HOME=C:\Program Files\IBM WAS ASTV6.1\eclipse\plugins\org.apache.ant_1.6.5

set JAVA_HOME=""C:\Program Files\IBMWAS Express6.1\java""

set CLASSPATH=C:\Program Files\IBM WAS ASTV6.1\eclipse\plugins\org.apache.ant_1.6.5\lib\ant.jar;C:\Program Files\IBMWAS Express6.1\java\lib\tools.jar;%CLASSPATH%

I'm getting th same error, If any one can help me on this.

Hi Jeanne,

Thanks for quick reply.

I'm running Ant from IBM Websphere Application Server Toolkit and Websphere 6.1

I'm running under same JRE as the workspace.

I'm able to create Ear using WSAD 5.1.
I'm migrating to Websphere Application server 6.1.
I'm using IBM WAS express v6.1 and AST v6.1.4, and Java version = J2RE 1.5.0 and EJB 2.0 & Ant 1.6.5, I'm able to run the application with AST, while creating ear using ANT script i'm getting the following error.

C:\PModelRel54View\mpainen_PricingModel_CMODS_Development_3\CMODS\PricingModel\ProjectBuild.xml:13: Could not create task or type of type: getProjectData.

Ant could not find the task or a class this task relies upon.

This is common and has a number of causes; the usual
solutions are to read the manual pages then download and
install needed JAR files, or fix the build file:
- You have misspelt 'getProjectData'.
Fix: check your spelling.
- The task needs an external JAR file to execute
and this is not found at the right place in the classpath.
Fix: check the documentation for dependencies.
Fix: declare the task.
- The task is an Ant optional task and the JAR file and/or libraries
implementing the functionality were not found at the time you
yourself built your installation of Ant from the Ant sources.
Fix: Look in the ANT_HOME/lib for the 'ant-' JAR corresponding to the
task and make sure it contains more than merely a META-INF/MANIFEST.MF.
If all it contains is the manifest, then rebuild Ant with the needed
libraries present in ${ant.home}/lib/optional/ , or alternatively,
download a pre-built release version from
- The build file was written for a later version of Ant
Fix: upgrade to at least the latest release version of Ant
- The task is not an Ant core or optional task
and needs to be declared using <taskdef>.
- You are attempting to use a task defined using
<presetdef> or <macrodef> but have spelt wrong or not
defined it at the point of use

Remember that for JAR files to be visible to Ant tasks implemented
in ANT_HOME/lib, the files must be in the same directory or on the

Please neither file bug reports on this problem, nor email the
Ant mailing lists, until all of these causes have been explored,
as this is not an Ant bug.

Can any one help me out please

I have and build.xml and ProjectBuild.xml the 3 files i have for Ant script.
