Chapter 3. Building Java Code


Ant is the premiere build tool for Java developers, and this chapter focuses on the Java build process, from compiling Java code with the javac task through compressing and packaging the results with tasks such as jar and tar. Along the way, I'll discuss several central build issues, such as keeping track of the build number, storing that number in a JAR file's manifest file, getting input from the user and acting on that input, calling one Ant target from another, creating Javadoc with the javadoc task, and more.
