Download Ant in Action by Steve Loughran PDF

By Steve Loughran

This moment variation of a Manning bestseller has been revised and re-titled to slot the 'In motion' sequence through Steve Loughran, an Ant undertaking committer. "Ant in motion" introduces Ant and the way to exploit it for test-driven Java program improvement. Ant itself is relocating to v1.7, a tremendous revision, on the finish of 2006 so the timing for the publication is correct. A unmarried program of accelerating complexity, in the course of the e-book, indicates how an program evolves and the way to deal with the issues of creating and checking out. Reviewers have praised the book's assurance of large-projects, Ant's complex gains, and the main points and intensity of the discussion-all unavailable in other places. this can be a significant revision with the second one half the e-book thoroughly new, together with: easy methods to deal with sizeable initiatives Library administration firm Java non-stop integration Deployment Writing new Ant initiatives and datatypes"

Jar, which depends on two compiled Java files, packaging them with the JAR program. java) files. In Make, you list the file dependencies, and the tool determines which rules to apply and in what sequence, while the developer is left tracking down bugs related to the need for invisible tab characters rather than spaces at the start of each action. When someone says that they use Make, it usually means they use Make-on-Unix, or Make-on-Windows. It’s very hard to build across both, and doing so usually requires a set of Unix-compatible applications, such as the Cygwin suite.

4 STEP TWO: WRITING YOUR FIRST ANT BUILD FILE Now the fun begins. We are going to get Ant to compile the program. Ant is controlled by providing a text file that tells how to perform all the stages of building, testing, and deploying a project. These files are build files, and every project that uses Ant must have at least one. xml. It is not actually a very good build file. We would not recommend you use it in a real project, for reasons revealed later in this chapter, but it does compile the code.

At the start of the project, if only one person is coding, then an IDE is a good starting point. As soon as more people work on the code, its deliverables get more complex, or the test suite starts to be written, then its time to turn to Ant. This is also a great time to set up the continuous integration server, or to add the project to a running one. 12 CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCING ANT Another place to use Ant is in your Java programs, if you want to use its functionality in your own project. While Ant was never designed with this reuse in mind, it can be used this way.
