By Alan Williamson, Andrew Wu, Joey Gibson, Kirk Pepperdine

Ant has emerged because the most popular development device for Java builders, automating tedious compilation, attempt, and code administration. Many Java builders are conscious of Ant yet there's little documentation to aid in getting begun with the Ant instrument. Even skilled builders who already use many of the good points of the Ant instrument, fight with the extra complicated facets. This ebook will teach these builders in Ant's extra complicated themes, and aid them get extra out of the software. The Ant Developer's guide starts off with a swift advent to acquiring, fitting, and configuring Ant and covers all significant characteristic units and use practices. Ant is a cross-platform construct and configuration administration software. it really is written in Java, and makes use of XML as its dossier structure, thereby permitting complete improvement groups to percentage Ant construct records, whatever the working method every one developer is utilizing. Ant can practice approximately any universal configuration administration functionality, together with: * compiling software resource code * operating try out suites and construction archive documents * moving/copying records to server machines * interacting with resource keep watch over systemsConfiguration administration (CM) maintains to stay an important hassle within the software program improvement enviornment. This has been rather glaring with Java. As venture groups mature and notice that they want CM, they've been turning to Ant as a device to fill their CM wishes. Ant Developer's guide is necessary because it addresses the "how to" hole that's at the moment now not lined by way of the other set of documentation. This "how to" details should be vital for improvement groups as they try to use Ant in industrial-strength environments.
