This chapter is split into three main sections.

  1. Eclipse Ant basics: the basics of working with Ant buildfiles in Eclipse are covered
  2. Ant build files as project builders: several Eclipse use cases are discussed
  3. External tools: the external tools framework and how to use non-Ant tools are covered
