Subject RE: ANT visions and best practices

That's quite an application you have there. Looks like this would benefit from a divide and
conquor approach. Start by figuring out the dependencies between deliverables. Can you build
the client without the DB and EJB's? If you can, then keep that as a sub-project and let it
have it's own build file. We don't use EJBs here yet, so someone else will need to offer code
for building those. Build those separately and use the resulting JAR files as dependencies
for other sub-projects that need them.

Summary: build each module as a separate sub-project. Use the output from builds as the input
to other builds. Keep asking for help.

Pay for overnight shipping on the Ant book or find a bookstore that would carry it. Sometimes
you just have to bite the bullet and buy the book yourself to get the job done in realistic
timeframes (just ask my poor wife, who shakes her head everytime a parcel arrives from
at our doorstep!)
