Ant has emerged because the hottest construction software for Java builders, automating tedious compilation, try out, and code administration. Many Java builders are conscious of Ant yet there's little documentation to help in getting began with the Ant device. Even skilled builders who already use the various beneficial properties of the Ant software, fight with the extra complex elements. This booklet will teach these builders in Ant's extra complicated themes, and aid them get extra out of the instrument. The Ant Developer's guide starts off with a quick advent to acquiring, fitting, and configuring Ant and covers all significant function units and use practices. Ant is a cross-platform construct and configuration administration instrument. it truly is written in Java, and makes use of XML as its dossier layout, thereby permitting complete improvement groups to percentage Ant construct records, whatever the working process each one developer is utilizing. Ant can practice approximately any universal configuration administration functionality, together with: * compiling program resource code * working attempt suites and development archive documents * moving/copying records to server machines * interacting with resource keep watch over systemsConfiguration administration (CM) maintains to stay an important trouble within the software program improvement area. This has been really glaring with Java. As undertaking groups mature and detect that they wish CM, they've been turning to Ant as a device to fill their CM wishes. Ant Developer's guide is necessary because it addresses the "how to" hole that's at present no longer coated by means of the other set of documentation. This "how to" details may be very important for improvement groups as they try and use Ant in industrial-strength environments.

Xml that can serve as the basis for future projects. [ Team LiB ] [ Team LiB ] 37 38 Chapter 3. Global Concepts We'll begin this chapter with a description of a standard development directory structure. We'll show you what is generally used for different types of projects and explain why you should consider adopting it for your own projects. Note What we'll be showing you is a common structure, but there are other layouts that you may choose to use. Ant makes it easy to work with just about any layout you can dream up.
FilterReaders can be used only when contained within a FilterChain, which is simply a chain, or pipeline, of FilterReaders. The basic duty of a FilterReader is to perform some sort of filtering on a file as it is read. Ant comes with several built-in FilterReaders. java files • StripLineComments Removes lines that start with user-defined comment characters • StripLineBreaks Removes all end-of-line characters from the input file • LineContains Copies only those lines containing a specified string • LineContainsRegexp Copies only those lines containing a specified regular expression • PrefixLines Adds a specified string to the beginning of every line • TabsToSpaces Converts tab characters to a given number of spaces ClassConstants I'll demonstrate each of the FilterReaders using the
According to the Ant manual, this mapper will replace directory separators in the matched source files with dots. This would enable you to generate names based on the Java package scheme, which would be most useful in an uptodate or junit task. 34 shows the example from the manual. xml"/> There is no definitive list of Ant tasks that use mappers. But if you think about those tasks that take a list of files and output files with similar names, but perhaps with different extensions, you should be able to figure out which tasks support mappers.
