Conventions Used in This Book

There are some conventions I'll use that you should know about. When there's a new piece of code under discussion, it will appear highlighted; when there's more code to come, you'll see three dots. Here's what that looks like:

import; import; public class Project extends Task  {     private String language;     public void execute( ) throws BuildException      {         System.out.println("The language is " + language);     }     public void setLanguage(String language)      {         this.language = language;         .         .         .     } }

Note that I'll use the standard convention for selecting menu items in this book when menu items come into play (as when we use Ant in the Eclipse IDE). For instance, to create a new project in Eclipse, you use the File New Project menu item.

The following typographical conventions are used in this book:

Plain text

Indicates menu titles, menu options, menu buttons, and keyboard accelerators.


Indicates new terms, URLs, email addresses, filenames, file extensions, pathnames, directories, and Unix utilities.

Constant width

Indicates commands, options, switches, variables, types, classes, namespaces, methods, modules, properties, parameters, values, objects, events, event handlers, or XML tags.

Constant width italic

Shows text that should be replaced with user-supplied values.

Constant width bold


This icon signifies a tip, suggestion, or general note.

This icon signifies a caution or warning.
