Useful Ant Tips

This article delivers just what it promises - a list of useful tips for Apache Ant.

Some tips I'd add...

  • DO: use the Ant-Contrib package to get access to all sorts of slick plugins
  • DO: use the SQL task to prepare and cleanup your database
  • DO: use the import tag to split up your massive build file into manageable parts

Overall, excellent advice!

Update: DO: use MacroDef to build abstractions that result in more concise and clearer build files.
