Modifying the Ant Classpath
When using an optional or custom task, adding extra libraries to the classpath may be necessary. The Ant classpath can be modified globally or by using an individual project's launch configuration. To set the Ant classpath for an individual Eclipse project, open the Ant launch configuration for the project and click the Classpath tab. You can add external JARs by clicking the Add External JARs button.
You can modify the Ant classpath globally for all projects. To do that, select Window→ Preferences→ Ant→ Runtime, and click the Classpath tab. You can add JAR files as needed here, and they'll be used globally for all Ant builds.

That is funny. There is an Eclipse plugin for ANT.
The project is deployed to tomcat/webapps.
Why do it this way? Because it is easy.
I take it you're a netbeans user. Or stick to the command line.
