Use Ant to automate tasks

 

Overview

Apache Ant is a Java-based build tool. In theory, it is similar to Make, but Ant is different. Instead of a model in which it is extended with shell-based commands, Ant is extended using Java classes. Instead of writing shell commands, XML-based configuration files are used. These files reference a target tree in which various tasks are run. Each task is run by an object that implements a particular Task interface.

By combining the following tasks with those provided by Ant, one can create build scripts that compile, package, install, and test your application on the application server:
