Soon after its launch, Ant succeeded in taking the Java world by storm, becoming the most widely used tool for building applications in Java environments. Like most popular technologies, Ant quickly went through a series of early revision cycles. With each new version, more functionality was added, and more complexity was introduced. Ant evolved from a simple-to-learn build tool into a full-fledged testing and deployment environment. Ant: The Definitive Guide has been reworked, revised and expanded upon to reflect this evolution. It documents the new ways that Ant is being applied, as well as the array of optional tasks that Ant supports. In fact, this new second edition covers everything about this extraordinary build management tool from downloading and installing, to using Ant to test code.Here are just of a few of the features you'll find detailed in this comprehensive, must-have guide: - Developing conditional builds, and handling error conditions - Automatically retrieving source code from version control systems - Using Ant with XML files - Using Ant with JavaServer Pages to build Web applications - Using Ant with Enterprise JavaBeans to build enterprise applications Far exceeding its predecessor in terms of information and detail, Ant: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition is a must-have for Java developers unfamiliar with the latest advancements in Ant technology. With this book at your side, you'll soon be up to speed on the premiere tool for cross-platform development. Author Steve Holzner is an award-winning author who s been writing about Java topics since the language first appeared; his books have sold more than 1.5 million copies worldwide.

Der 5. Stern bleibt dem Buch versagt, da an einigen Stellen das eine oder andere weitere Beispiel doch aussagekräftiger gewesen wäre, als nur die Auflistung aller Optionen.
and ANT. fine. let's use it as needed and get a book to teach the basics. O'Reilly being good in general, I got the "definitive guide" here. But on initial use, it's disappointing.
Take the basic (yes, basic!) tasks. Like "copy". This is described in one line (table 1-3). No mention that copy only copies when the destination is "older" than the source. Would have been good to know.... Yes, it's in the on-line doc of ANT, but when I have a book on the topic, it should be there.
Similar frustration with a clean syntax for all sorts of XML elements introduced by ANT. Just not there. For example <srcfiles>. It's specified by example, not clear what attributes the element takes etc,. at least the index doesn't point to THE place of definition.
There is a pompuous section "overriding properties", but you have to read through all this verbiage to figure out that ANT properties can only be overridden via System/environment properties. Well, why can't this be said concisely? Instead, a lengthy example is given. Probably the audience is illiterate or I don't know what.
In summary: a cheap shot to make money by copying and pasting from the Apache on-line docs. Which are good, but sometimes I do like to flip through hard-copy (remember punch cards).

That's why I was disappointed with this book, and only gave it three stars. O'Reilly has an unfortunate habit of giving the same type of title to any of its books on a subject, regardless of their real content. Thus, "HTML and XHTML: The Definitive Guide" is a both a *guide* and a *reference*, and pretty much the only HTML book you need.
"Ant", on the other hand, really needs a companion reference for more experienced Ant users. Anyone who uses Ant soon realizes that the online documentation is less than stellar.
This book is a necessary starting point for Ant; now we need more! Ant, after all, is worth documenting, since it's *much* better than any alternative out there.
