Subject RE: Proposed Release Date for Ant 1.5.2?
Date Thu, 06 Feb 2003 20:01:29 GMT
You can set a different version of Ant to use with the IDE...we have 
worked hard to make this as easy as possible and have no (little) impact 
on the integration.
You can point to an Ant install and use that as your Ant home location.
We provide an Ant version with the Eclipse SDK for the "out of the box" 

We do not modify Ant...just provide a different entry point, build 
loggers, input handler,  etc (and a little bit of UI ;-) )

Try it out and give us feedback at

Quick question for you. Can you use a different version of Ant than the 
Eclipse shipped with, and still retain proper Ant integration with the 
Do you modify Ant in any way when shipping it? A few of us are working 
IntelliJ here, and having that guy force the usage of it's own Ant version
is just a PITA. Replacing the version inside IntelliJ is also a PITA IMHO.

I'd like to know if Eclipse fares better in that department. Thanks, --DD

PS: Seems to me that integration of Ant with an IDE should only require a
smart build listener/logger that feeds back events of the forked Ant 
to the IDE app.

Subject: Proposed Release Date for Ant 1.5.2?

I am one of the committers working on the Eclipse Ant integration and we 
would like to try to include the latest Ant release in the upcoming 2.1 
release of Eclipse. 
We have about a two week window left.

I had seen posts in the past indicating early February. Can someone give 
us an approximate timeline? Or point me to the right web page :-)

Thanks for your time
