Can I learn to use Ant within Netbeans or am I better using it directly first.

I think you can learn Ant in NetBeans, where Ant is the primary build system. It has GUI tools to help you build set properties of Ant tasks, similar to setting properties of GUI components. You shouldn't be afraid to look at the XML, or modify it directly, but the NetBeans tools will be a big help.
I agree. Here's the link:
