entry for each block, stating dependencies in forms of jars and other 
There is a property file that says if a block should be compiled.

Ant generates a build file that resolves the dependencies, builds the 
blocks one by one, and adds the xmap with the ant tool to the webapp.

The samples in this way are still in webapp, and also the documentation.

What do you think?

Anything wrong? Anything missing?
