Harshal, You dont want to go there. Read ahead in your java books to the 
bits on concurrency and multithreading and try and make sense of it. 
Then note that ant is not really designed or tested for thread safety.

If you are learning Java, I would probably push you at an IDE as much as 
Ant. While I'm glad that you want to use our tool, its best of learning 
the basics of IDE-hosted dev and using JUnit for testing before worrying 
too much about how to automate the build process.
