Actually, there is a newsgroup dedicated to WTP: eclipse.webtools - you
are likely to get more response by posting there. I have cross-posted
this reply to that group and set the Followup-To: header

I'm no expert on this kind of thing, but I know you can run ant tasks by
starting a headless eclipse instance. We do something similar to create
web services using ant tasks from the command line.

Have a look in the ant folder in the
eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.wst.command.env plugin folder to see how we
do it. More specifically have a look at the wsant.bat or wsant.sh files
to see how we run an ant task without launching the eclipse UI.

Hope this helps!
Mark

Hello,
Thanks for your answer; so, if I summarize, with your script I know how to
launch the eclipse ant without having to start eclipse.
To solve my problem, I now have to know what ant task of wtp to call (in
clear, I have to adapt your wsgen.xml file, right?).
This is a good start, but what I wanted to know was:
- How do I get the ant tasks wtp is using for compiling and packaging to
know (is there an ant script somewhere?)?

Do you know where I can find this information?

Regards,
Alexandre
