Subject Something like "make install" in Ant
Date Fri, 22 Oct 2010 13:44:20 GMT

I wonder if ant supports something like "make install" in make of GNU. I
examined various build.xml files from various well known projects like
Apache Tomcat etc., but couldn't see anything about installing files built
into somewhere like /usr/bin in GNU/Linux distros.

If there is no such target, could i ask "why not"? Because after compilation
with suitable target, say "ant compile", copying everything built into
correct paths is the work of those building the source with ant. Doesn't
automation of this process as in "make install" make the life easier?
