start and stop Tomcat from ANT

To Start and stop tomcat using Ant is fairly very simple, 
1.Create a build.xml file.
2. Set TOMCAT_HOME=[TOMCAT INSTLL DIR] in Classpath of the System
3. Write the below ant task
<target name="startTomcat">
    <java jar="${tomcat_home}/bin/bootstrap.jar" fork="true">
        <jvmarg value="-Dcatalina.home=${tomcat_home}"/>
    </java>
</target>

<target name="stopTomcat">
    <java jar="${tomcat_home}/bin/bootstrap.jar" fork="true">
        <jvmarg value="-Dcatalina.home=${tomcat_home}"/>
        <arg line="stop"/>
    </java>
</target>
