One will be the German, Ant Kurtz und Gut, I guess.

Also, Java tools for Extreme Programming covers Ant (1.3 or 1.4, I forget),
along with junit, cactus, and httpunit...not as much on ant as the others,
but more on testing (and those bits havent dated much yet). Has a bias
towards EJB, which may or may not be your thing :). I also see on Amazon two
more books up and coming on the whole open source java toolchain; these will
be breadth rather than depth books, I suspect.
