There is a GUI in *early* Development which should do something like this
someday. (It's called antidode and available thru ant CVS).

Regarding dependencied: Ant does not use dependencies by default (there is
an optional task which could do this, but I have never used it).

To get started you could use a simple build.xml and modifiy it to meet your
needs. As an example I have attached the build.xml from IBM's BSF which is a
simple one and does just compile there source-tree and creates a jar-file.

If you have more questions or suggestions what should be included in the ant
distribution to get new users started feel free to post them to the list

Hope this helps.
