Kevin Jackson, Ant Committer

Ant in Action is a complete guide to using Ant to build, test, redistribute and deploy Java applications. A retitled second edition of the bestselling and award-winning Java Development with Ant, this book contains over 50% new content including:

  • New Ant 1.7 features
  • Scalable builds for big projects
  • Continuous integration techniques
  • Deployment
  • Library management
  • Extending Ant

Whether you are dealing with a small library or a complex server-side system, this book will help you master your build process. By presenting a running example that grows in complexity, the book covers nearly the entire gamut of modern Java application development, including test-driven development and even how to set up your database as part of the deployment.

About the Technology

The most widely used build tool for Java projects, Ant is cross-platform, extensible, simple, and fast. It scales from small personal projects to large, multi-team enterprise projects. And, most important, it's easy to learn.
