I got the sample from template working (for the default web-client.war that is generated),
but have some doubts on the servlet-lib.path line
in .ant.properties file.
In .ant.properties -
When I point servlet-lib.path=<a war file>,
it is ignored, instead a web-client.war is generated.
When I point servlet-lib.path=,
a web-client.war is generated as well.
What exactly is the purpose of servlet-lib.path line
in .ant.properties file?
The Quick Start Guide says -
servlet-lib.path: when you have a web application then uncomment it and adjust it to
point to the servlet archive file
When this property is set the build script will generate a WAR file. If set it has to point to the archive containing the "javax.servlet" packages and classes.
