Subject RE: Commenting/generate documentation from an ant script
Date Fri, 19 May 2006 16:18:23 GMT
This may just address some of your questions but FWIW, I happen to know
specific tools that you are looking for. Never used them before myself

For a tool to generate Javadocs for your Ant scripts - AntDoc

For unit testing in Ant, check out AntUnit
