Re: [eclipse-dev] Can't seem to use the Ant editor on files not named build.xml

These types of questions should be asked in the eclipse newsgroups...

To solve you problem
Window>Preferences>Workbench>File Associations
Add your association for the Ant Aditor for iSeriesDeployment.xml there.

The location you added in the Ant preferences is only used to emulate the
-find functionality of Apache Ant when performing the actual Ant build.(Which I believe is indicated in the label for that text field :-) )
