co-worker actually bought it and over the past six months or so, mine is the one (the Manning
book) that gets all the borrowing.
I think that the Manning book is the best one out there. 

It gives a brief tutorial on using JUnit also, which helped me quite a 
bit to get up to speed on the essentials of Ant.  It covers many common 
build tasks and where it doesn't do exactly what you want you can 
usually adapt the process to what you need.  It covers just about every 
area of Java technology, it seems.

Plus Erik is a good friend of mine and he sent me a signed copy for free 
:-)  But it's really a good book, even without my bias.  Also, Erik, 
please try to work OGNL in the next revision of the book!
