Ant-Contrib Tasks

What's this?

The Ant-Contrib project is a collection of tasks (and at one point maybe types and other tools) for Apache Ant.

This Software is distributed under the Apache Software License.


First you must install Apache Ant itself, most of the Ant-Contrib tasks require Ant 1.5 or higher to work properly. You can download Ant from Apache.

Ant-contrib releases are available at the downloads page. Mailing lists, CVS and bug trackers can be accessed from the project page.

See the cc tasks for installation instructions for cpptasks. To install ant-contrib:

  1. Copy ant-contrib-0.3.jar to the lib directory of your Ant installation. If you want to use one of the tasks in your own project, add the lines
    <taskdef resource="net/sf/antcontrib/"/>
    to your build file.
  2. Keep ant-contrib-0.3.jar in a separate location. You now have to tell Ant explicitly where to find it (say in /usr/share/java/lib):
    <taskdef resource="net/sf/antcontrib/">
        <pathelement location="/usr/share/java/lib/ant-contrib-0.3.jar"/>
