Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 9 Developer's Guide

The asant Utility

Apache Ant 1.6.5 is provided with the Application Server and can be launched from the bin directory using the command asant. The Application Server also provides server-specific tasks for administration and deployment; see Chapter 3, The asant Utility. The sample applications that can be used with the Application Server use Ant build.xml files; see Sample Applications.
