Dear Loughran,

 	I am new to ant Scripting.  My requirement is like this.  We are using

         I receive an .EAR file and before deployment my BUILD should do the

		a. My Script should locate the weblogic-ejb-jar.xml inside the .EAR and
		   Element should be modified per EJB basis.

	What do you suggest?

no, I forgot to type some stuff

1. Resource collections are a new way of representing stuff; filesets
are inherently resource collections. I'm told this will make it easier
to manipulate filesets.

2. what was #2? I forget.

Maybe. I might have a go at starting the test suite, its not too hard in
junit, and now AntUnit promises more simplicity.

its primarily for local deployment-by-copying. Now, maven itself has a
built in publish-to-a-repository goal doesnt it? That is what i really
need, I suspect. Push out an artifact to a location, generate a POM file
on demand, plus the checksums.

...just another example of how J2SE is laptop unfriendly. I think it
comes from sun's no-laptop-except-powerbooks-you-buy-yourself policy.
