Hmm, taking a look I see the Getting Started doc isn't explicit about this. Here's what to do:
go to where you got the document (http://www.jboss.org/docs/#free-30x)
right below the link to download the document is a link to "Download Template and Examples".
(The link is to
Download this and unzip it. You should get a directory structure like this
The template referred to in the docs is (obviously) the template directory here. Copy this somewhere and modify it.
Hope this helps -- Loren
OK I now have those directories, and have copied the templates directory somewhere else. I have edited .ant.properties.example with JBOSS_HOME and XCDOCLET_HOME. I have tried to rename this file to .ant.properties but Explorer won't allow it. The closest I can get is .ant.properties.txt by opening in Notepad and Saving As. (I am presuming you have to rename the file because it says so, and the build.xml refers to it)
There was a thread about this over in the forum on the Getting Started doc
http://www.jboss.org/modules/bb/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=forums/ you can rename the file to .ant.properties using the command prompt, even if some other programs won't let you.
Failing that, I suppose you could modify build.xml to refer to the file by whatever name you fancy.
