You can also run Ant directly from the command line, but for the exercises in this book we will be running Ant only from within Eclipse. , one after another. But, of course, tasks—or targets, as Ant calls them—can have dependencies on other tasks. Before we can start playing around with Ant, we need to make sure we have all the JAR files in place and set up. JAR files are Java ARchives, a way to distribute source code or libraries.
