Xiao-Feng, the attachment is there: "build.zip" 54k, I've just checked the link and it worked
for me.

> Need to refactor DRLVM build system was stated since early ages of Harmony, due to its
awkwardness and bad augmentability (one can find a lot of discussons in dev-list archives).
> Here is this long-expected feature, "normalized" ant build system, featuring:
> - improved portability, as it uses unified set of properties defined by classlib, drops
"build.bat/build.sh" wrappers and provides traditional ant interface for users and external
scripts;
> - better maintainability and robustness, as it does not rely on XSL build preprocessing,
on-fly generated scripts and buggy ant-contrib features (except tests which really need "for"
task);
> - much faster rebuild time even with cpptasks: void build takes only 7-8 sec (and can
be improved a bit more). Also, it is possible to build standalone component w/o rebuilding
dependencies which is also handy.
> - enhanced modularity and plugability: any component or test script can be used independently
(modulo 2-3 shared ant files), simplifying component reusing or redeployment.
> For now, the system lacks facilities for managing external dependencies, it just relies
on presence and layout of artifacts as retrieved via old build.
> The dependency management is to be refactored cross Harmony components, including classlib,
drlvm and jdktools.
