Ant beginner, having problems

I�m currently doing the J2EE tutorial off of Java Sun, and downloaded the Sun Application Server 9.0 which includes the ant download.

I�m having trouble deploying my applications from the command line using Ant though. I�ve set the path variable as per instructions as-install/lib/ant/bin and modified the relevant paths in the bp-project/ file.

When I build the application using the ant command, it builds successfully despite initially stating that its �unable to find tools.jar expecting to find it in jre_1.6.03\lib\tools.jar�.

When I try to deploy it fails completely. It states again it unable to find the tools.jar and that the build .xml does not exist

I am currently able to deploy applications using NetBeans, but I want to get Ant working.

Anyone able to point me in the right direction please. Apologies if I�m doing something wrong that�s obvious.

Couple of things to check:

Can you post the output?
Ant also has a verbose option, try to see what info that provides.
If you were a tree, what sort of tree would you be? This tiny ad is a poop beast.
