// Ah Ant. How I love thee, how much better a build tool
// than my ex build tool Make.
// This is my current starting build.xml Ant script for any
// Java project. It specifies my usual directories, it will
// build source code, make a Jar, build a War, clean up build
// products, create Javadoc, and even run unit tests.
// Notice that I use the JReleaseInfo library to automatically
// generate a Java class that contains version numbers, build
// numbers, etc. Be sure to put the Jar from that library in
// the library directory to get that feature:
// http://jreleaseinfo.sourceforge.net/
