I am in the process of deploying a web application to Websphere and it amazes me on how people around deploy the application. A few use Ant to create the WAR file and then use a shell script to deploy the application. Why not just use *Ant*? Well I dont get it. Here are the details/links that I figured would be helpful for deployment.

The sad part is that the link in the article does not point to the right download file to download the IBM ant extras. Its perfect case of trying to find a freaking needle in a haystack! IBM download site *sucks* Period! How about learning some lessons from Microsoft? I have tried googling for information to no avail. I have finally decided to email the author of the article who happens to work @ IBM. Hoping to hear back from him. Meanwhile if any one of you knows where I can download the file, please leave the information in the comments. Would be very helpful. More to come.
