Subject RE: Calling Ant from a Java main?

You can use ANT's listener to capture your build log then transform the
build log to html using xslt task.

I have it set up where I execute a build with a listener to capture the log.

	 ant -f build_csharp.xml -listener"

This will generate a "log.xml" file.
then... use XSLT task to transform the log.xml to a html build file using
log.xsl stylesheet that ANT provides.

	<property name="ant.XmlLogger.stylesheet.uri"
location="${ant.home}\etc\log.xsl" />
	<target name="translate-build-log" depends="init" if="found.log"
			description="create html from an xml log" >
				out		=
				in		=
				style	= "${ant.XmlLogger.stylesheet.uri}"

don't know if this is what your looking for.  hope this helps.

could you please explain more on your "build log analyzer that produces an
HTML report about the build"
and if you can share your build log analyzer code with us ?
