Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ant, the new Java-based application building tool from the Apache Foundation, adds XML functionality and cross-platform operability to previous "Make" tools, creating an extremely powerful development environment. This book provides a complete, tutorial-based Ant guide and reference. The book begins by introducing users to this new tool, with the basics of installation and file handling. Subsequent chapters attack the subject matter from a pragmatic angle, grouping similar commands by subject, and then discussing them from a "practical use" point of view. Throughout the text, examples are included to make the learning process as painless as possible. The book's companion CD-ROM contains the latest version of Apache Ant and Jakarta Oro, in addition to all the source code.

Book News Annotation:

The author offers guidance on using the Ant tool to specify groups of files and to apply specified commands to these files, such as calling Java compilers and copier commands. Topics include tags for defining filesets, file commands, organizing commands into targets, modifying text files, evaluating conditions, and creating archives. The CD-ROM provides Apache Ant 1.5.3 and Jakarta Oro. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
