Subject RE: Recommendations for moving from java to .NET
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2003 18:40:43 GMT

What commands do you use to build your c/c++ code from within ant?  I am
setting up the build process for our company and I am currently working
on our Java code but I will have to provide a solution for building all
of our C/C++ DevStudio projects.

The laughter stemmed from someone moving *from* Java/J2EE to .NET, not
in requesting tools to build .NET applications.

Of course Ant will become the premiere build tool for all environments.
I use it to build my C/C++ code as well.

But, *you* must admit the same qualities that make Ant so appealing are
the same ones that stem from Java and are inherent with J2EE.  For
someone to recognize that in Ant, but not in Java/J2EE, was... funny.
