    Summary     : Java build tool
    Description :
    Apache Ant is a Java library and command-line tool whose mission is to
    drive processes described in build files as targets and extension
    points dependent upon each other.  The main known usage of Ant is the
    build of Java applications.  Ant supplies a number of built-in tasks
    allowing to compile, assemble, test and run Java applications.  Ant
    can also be used effectively to build non Java applications, for
    instance C or C++ applications.  More generally, Ant can be used to
    pilot any type of process which can be described in terms of targets
    and tasks.
