Help make developers use ANT

           Summary: Help make developers use ANT
           Product: Ant
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: albedo@hem.passagen.se


I think it would be a good idea to, add to the documentation/FAQ a help for make
people to use ant. I would consist of a comparison of things you do in make vs.
how to do them with ant. 

Exaple:
In make you do:               In ant you do:

Nisse.class: Nisse.java       <target><javac>Nisse.java</javac></taget>
   javac Nisse.java

etc

And in this way show the common make rules with its corresponding ant targets.
One very common thing to do in make is:

%.class: %.java
      javac $<

I have not found out how to do this in ant, but with the above mentioned
comparison I would have found it very quickly.
