Subject visual studio c++ question
Date Wed, 17 Mar 2004 15:33:30 GMT

Hi all,

I have a general question about ant use with visual studio for c++. I hope 
there's somebody out there that can answer my questions.

1) Is there a significant reduction in the build time for applications when 
using ant under visual studio?  I've seen the benefits when building java 
applications but am a little unsure about them wrt visual studio.

2) Are the adaptors for visual studio mature and relatively reliable in 
terms of bugginess? i.e. are *lots* of real enterprise level applications 
out there built over ant and vc++?

3) has microsoft embraced the ant movement for their development 
environment? If not, why so? I would have thought it would have been 
mutually beneficial for both organisations to embrace the technology if it 
is so beneficial.

4) what are the pain points wrt ant and visual studio?

thanks much,
