Antlion v0.9.0 Manual

The Antlion experiment separates the Antlion concerns into three categories:

  • Libraries handle external files that a project has dependencies on.
  • Artifacts represent files created by a project, that get published or used by other projects.
  • Subprojects indicate what other projects a project depends upon.
These three categories naturally have dependencies upon one another, but can be used independently.

Use the navigation bar on the left-hand side to browse the manual. If this is your first time looking at the manual, then you should read these pages in the order listed in that navigation bar.

Antlion Requirements

To use the basic Antlion, you must meet the following requirements:

  • JDK 1.2 or higher. This is also required by Ant 1.6.
  • Ant version 1.6.0 or higher. Ant includes many different optional libraries, and Antlion contains several dependencies upon these:
    • ant.jar (this is the core Ant library)
    • ant-nodeps.jar (Doesn't require any external dependencies. This is only needed if you plan on using the Proxy capabilities of the Maven repository.)
    • ant-apache-bsf.jar (only needed if you use the <script> processor. See the Ant documentation on <library dependencies> for information on this jar file's external dependencies)
