Example text

5. 7. 7 or later. 7 are being introduced, we mark the appropriate paragraph. Here’s an example: The spawn attribute of the task lets you start a process that will outlive the Ant run, letting you use Ant as a launcher of applications. If you’ve been using Ant already, all your existing build files should still work. Ant is developed by a rigorous process and a wide beta test program. That’s one of the virtues of a software build tool as an open source project: it’s well engineered by its end users, and it’s tested in the field long before a product ships.

We also changed the name to Ant in Action. Without the wonderful response to the first edition, we would never have written it. And we can say that without the wonderful tools at our disposal—Ant, JUnit, IntelliJ IDEA, jEdit, and Eclipse—we wouldn’t have been able to write it so well. We owe something to everyone who has 1 worked on those projects. If you’re one of those people, remind us of this fact if you ever happen to meet us, and we shall honor our debt in some way. The Application: A Diary We’re going to write a diary application.

Users of older versions should upgrade before continuing, while anyone without a copy of Ant should download and install the latest version. If needed, Appendix A contains instructions on how to do so. 7 SUMMARY This chapter has introduced Ant, a Java tool that can build, test, and deploy Java projects ranging in size from the very small to the very, very large. • Ant uses XML build files to describe what to build. Each file covers one Ant project; a project is divided into targets; targets contain tasks.
