Ant war task

Many of us build war files as part of the project, however some projects stilll use jar and copy ant tasks to assemble war file. However ant has a built-in war task which takes care of web.xml, classes, libraries etc.,

Here is sample of ant war task.

<war destfile=”myapp.war” webxml=”myapp/web.xml”>

<classes dir=”myapp/classes” />

<lib dir=”myapp/lib”>

<exclude name=”whatever you need to exclude” />


<fileset dir=”myapp/jsp” />

<fileset dir=”myapp/html” />
