Apache Ant is a powerful build tool with significant built-in capabilities. However, a few capabilities and best practices stand out; they are described here. After reading this chapter, you will be able to

  • Understand what Ant property files are and how they can be used to make build scripts more maintainable.

  • Understand how to use Ant's capabilities to better integrate with IBM Rational ClearCase.

  • Implement Ant build files that support reuse and maintainability on large projects.
