Agreed - but don't limit the books discussion soley to Java development.

I'm using Ant here at work to automate builds for Delphi applications and 
it all works a treat.

Ant's "smart" behaviour is one of the things that has enabled me to reduce 
build times markedly - from just over 3.5 hours when using NT 4 scripts 
down to under 10 minutes.

I've put all the logic for a Delphi application build into a Task that I 
invoke with AntCall - I probably should implement a Task to do this cleaner 
and faster, but I kinda don't want to mess with a system that works!
