New Page:

= Motivation =
Considering Ant build files as code which has to be maintained, it should be documented like
other code as well.

= Textual Documentation =

== AntDoc ==
Antdoc is an automatic Ant script documentation generation, in the same spirit as the must
Javadoc. This documentation enables to directly execute Ant build files.


= Visual Documentation =

== Grand ==
Grand is a tool to create visual representation of ant target dependencies. It works by taking
a ant build file and creating a "dot" file. This file need to be post-processed with Graphviz
 to produce the actual graph.


== Vizant ==
Vizant is an Apache Ant task to create Graphviz DOT source code from an Ant buildfile. The
image created from the DOT source code shows the targets dependency.
