Hi all,

Can anybody offer a good book for Ant with examples of building and deploying Web and J2EE Applications?

How about 2?

The 2 on my reference shelf that I heavily use are:

Ant Developer's Handbook published by SAMS

Java Development with Ant published by Manning

Both have theri good points but you will probably want to start with the one from Manning first..its always a good idea to check out the book from porject contributors first.. and coauthor Steve Loughran is a contributor to the ANT project..
