ANT is a Java based tool for `making' software. It is described as ``make without makes' wrinkles''. Although it is meant for more languages than just Java, its main aim is Java. ANT is used in large projects, such as ArgoUML? and TomCat?.


ANT configuration files are in XML format. Build files usually contain multiple targets, which might dependent on each other. Each target uses one or more tasks. ANT build files can be used on any platform because most build-in tasks are platform-independent. New tasks can be easily implemented in Java and added to ANT.

Idea: develop ANT tasks for XT.
