Ant script from DOS prompt

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a build file that genereates an EAR file. This build file is executed within RAD and it used a RAD specific ANT task called "earExport". I have couple of questions on this:
I read on some other forums that its WAS/RAD specific task and If you want to execute the script outside of RAD you have to make use of RAD's JRE. My question is, how do I run this ant script build-myapp.xml from DOS prompt using my RAD's JRE and make use of Properties file as well? (properties file is in the same folder as ant script)
Other info:

JAVA_HOME is set to
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_28

 ANT_HOME is set to
RAD's JRE location is
C:\Program Files\IBM\RAD7\runtimes\base_v7\java\jre
