Hi,

I am using Eclipse Ganymede (v3.4) and WAS 6.1. To run my application which I am developing, I am creating a WAR file from Eclipse and then deploying it in WAS. It is time consuming when I have to make some changes to the code and test it. If I was using Tomcat, I would easily create a new server within Eclipse and run the application? Is there a similar way to do that with WAS? I tried that too in my Eclipse by clicking new server from the servers tab. But I couldn't find WAS 6.1 in the list. I have only WAS 6.0 listed. How do I add WAS 6.1 to the list and also add the server and run the web app?

Thanks!

It would require a plugin from IBM. I know there used to be one, but I don't know if there is for 6.1. The alternative is to write a build script (Ant) to do all the manual steps for you so you only have to click/type one thing.

I don't have experience with Ant. Can you give me some pointers where I can get started with Ant ? In my scenario, what will Ant accomplish for me? Will it only create a WAR file automatically ? Or can I use it to deploy the app in WAS too ?

Start with the Ant documentation at http://ant.apache.org/manual/. The "Using Ant" link provides a quick tutorial.
