How to create a program of ANT.

Create a Simple program to calculate a multipale of two variables.

Use of Build.xml files.

Step1: If you want to test the build.xml file then you using to the Junit Liabrary files and compile file code is

<!-- Creates Javadoc -->
<target name="docs" depends="compile">
<javadoc packagenames="src" sourcepath="${src.dir}"
destdir="${docs.dir}">
<!-- Define which files / directory should get 
		  included, we include all -->
<fileset dir="${src.dir}">
	<include name="**" />
		</fileset>
		</javadoc>
	</target>

Step2: If you create a documet file then you using xml code is



<!-- Creates Javadoc -->
<target name="docs" depends="compile">
	<javadoc packagenames="src" sourcepath="${src.dir}"
	   destdir="${docs.dir}"><!-- Define which files / 
	   directory should get included,we include all -->
		 <fileset dir="${src.dir}">
			<include name="**" />
				</fileset>
     </javadoc>
</target>

Step3: If you create a jar file then you using code


<!--Creates the deployable jar file  -->
<target name="jar" depends="compile">
	<jar destfile="${dist.dir}\program1.jar" basedir=
"${build.dir}">
	 <manifest>
		<attribute name="Main-Class" value="test.Main"/>
			 </manifest>
	</jar>
</target>
<target name="main" depends="compile, jar, docs">
		<description>Main target</description>
</target>

Step4: If you create a mkdir file then using to the code:

<!-- Creates the  build, docs and dist directory-->
  <target name="makedir">
	  <mkdir dir="${build.dir}" />
		<mkdir dir="${docs.dir}" />
		<mkdir dir="${dist.dir}" />
  </target>

<!-- Creates the  build, docs and dist directory-->
	<target name="makedir">
		<mkdir dir="${build.dir}" />
		<mkdir dir="${docs.dir}" />
		<mkdir dir="${dist.dir}" />
	</target>
