Hi all,
I am using Net beans IDE 6.0. For projects (with existing code, new application project, etc). Should we create build.xml file or will it be created automatically. Many things like rmi compilation, running different run-time configurations, etc depends on that file. Please do help.
(a build.xml file is created in project folder.)

If you already have an existing ant script, choose create a new application with existing ant script.

If you only create a new application, NetBeans will create the ant script automatically, but you still can modify the ant script.
