I am running Eclipse version Kepler, Service Release 1. I am building a set of programs with Java, including 2 or 3 libraries, 3 web applications (Tomcat) and 6 or 8 runnable .jar files. It all works fine.|
Now I'm looking at trying to automate some of my build process. Among other things, that means I need to be able to compile my code and build my jar and war files from the command line (using ant). For the Runnable jar files, I was able to export the build.xml file to compile the code, and to export a <programName>.xml file to actually build the jar file - these are available from the Eclipse Export -> General -> Ant Buildfiles and the Export -> Runnable Jar File respectively).
However, I can't find anything like that for standalone jar files (libraries) or for my war files. I was able to compile the libraries as runnable jar files (although the size of the jar file more than doubled) so that is at least a workaround. But I can't find any way to automatically extract the build script for the .war files. I can probably construct an ant file that will package the war file, but I don't want to have to maintain it by hand...
Am I missing something simple here? Is there a way to extract scripts to package non-runnable jar files and war files?
