This course is aimed at students looking to learn the ANT build tool. Students will first be taken through the fundamentals of building an ANT script by examining the structure of an ANT file, and seeing how to use properties. Following that, the student will be taken through several common scenarios where ANT is used (e.g. building Java code, deploying/testing, co-ordinating with CVS, etc) and learn what tasks are available in each appropriate case, writing scripts as necessary. Finally, advanced topics such as integrating ANT with Eclipse and even extending ANT will be discussed.
