Example text

Ant doesn’t replace an IDE; a good editor with debugging and even refactoring facilities is an invaluable tool to have and use. Ant just takes control of compilation, packaging, testing, and deployment stages of the build process in a way that’s portable, scalable, and often reusable. As such, it complements IDEs. The latest generation of Java IDEs all support Ant. This means that developers can choose whatever IDE they like, and yet everyone can share the same automated build process. 3 WHEN TO USE ANT When do you need Ant?

Xml file, printing this fact out before it actually compiles any Java source. This provides a bit more insight into the workings of the task: it builds a list of files to compile, which it passes to the compiler along with Ant’s own classpath. The Java-based compiler that came with the Java Development Kit (JDK) is used by default, running inside Ant’s own JVM. This keeps the build fast. The log also shows that we’re now running on a Unix system, while we started on a Windows PC. Ant doesn’t care what platform you’re using, as long as it’s one of the many it supports.

Often, someone will have encountered the same build step that you have and will have written the task to perform it, so you can just use their work. If not, you can extend it in Java, producing another reusable Ant task or datatype. To summarize, Ant reads in a build file containing a project. In the project are targets that describe different things the project can do. Inside the targets are the tasks, tasks that do the individual steps of the build. Ant executes targets in the order implied by their declared dependencies, and the tasks inside them, thereby building the application.
