Ant editor

The Ant editor provides specialized features for editor Ant buildfiles. Associated with the editor is a Ant buildfile specific Outline view which shows the structure of the Ant build file. It is updated as you edit the buildfile

The editor includes the following features:
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Content/code assist (including Ant specific templates)
  • Annotations

The most common way to invoke the Ant editor is to open an Ant buildfile from one of the navigation views or Package explorer using pop-up menus or by clicking the file (single or double-click depending on your preference settings).
