Example text

Because Ant tasks are Java classes, the overhead of invoking each task is quite small. For each task, Ant creates a Java object, configures it, then calls its execute() method. A simple task such as would call a Java library method to create a directory. A more complex task such as would invoke a third-party FTP library to talk to the remote server, and, optionally, perform dependency checking to upload only files that were newer than those at the destination. A very complex task such as not only uses dependency checking to decide which files to compile, it supports multiple compiler back ends, calling Sun’s Java compiler in the same Java Virtual Machine (JVM), or executing a different compiler as an external executable.

It runs inside Integrated Development Environments Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) are great for editing, compiling, and debugging code, and they’re easy to use. It’s hard to convince users of a good IDE that they should abandon it for a build process based on a text file and a command line prompt. Ant integrates with all mainstream IDEs, so users do not need to abandon their existing development tools to use Ant. Ant doesn’t replace an IDE; a good editor with debugging and even refactoring facilities is an invaluable tool to have and use.

Ant is a free, open source project with broad support in the Java community. Modern IDEs support it, as do many developer tools. It also integrates well with modern test-centric development processes, bringing testing into the build process. SUMMARY 17 • There are other tools that have the same function as Ant—to build software— but Ant is the most widely used, broadly supported tool in the Java world. • Ant is written in Java, is cross platform, integrates with all the main Java IDEs, and has a command-line interface.
