IDE independence is critical for open resource tasks (or different initiatives) during which some of the builders may use assorted IDEs. utilizing Ant, Java builders can: * outline construct chunks, the implications that they need to produce, and the dependencies among them * instantly retrieve resource code from resource keep an eye on structures corresponding to PVCS * construct purposes through having Ant bring together the required resource documents within the right orderAnt construct documents are written utilizing XML-a well-established standard-so programmers utilizing Ant will not be required to benefit yet one more scripting language. they are going to most probably already understand XML, and may be capable to leverage that wisdom.

A master buildfile at the root of the project executes one or more of the subproject buildfiles to build parts of the project or the whole thing. Developers wanting to build individual subprojects run the buildfile in that subproject's directory and can effectively ignore the other subprojects in their day to day work (hence the reason for the design). A public example of such a project using cascading buildfiles is Jakarta's taglibs. In Appendix B, we provide a section on writing cascading buildfiles, as well as tips on how to manage the problems that the immutability (and possible mutability) of properties may present.

For dial-up users, this means the modem must be dialed up and connected before such tasks can run. Many corporate users, however, will run Ant from within a company firewall. If this is the case, you must often configure the JVM to use a proxy server before you can reach remote computers.
