Anybody introduces a good book on Ant?
It would be best that a book covers Ant + Eclipse.

My favorite Ant book is the one from O'Reilly. However, to my recollection it has nothing in it about Eclipse.

Go for ANT: The definitive Guide 2nd edition by Steve Holzner.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0596006098/sr=8-1/qid=1155632062/ref=pd_bbs_1/102-0067394-0325760?ie=UTF8

There's a chapter dedicated for ANT + Eclipse. But I guess the eclipse UI itself is intutive enough that you won't need a guide.

I liked Pro Apache Ant because there is less overlap with the online manual. Eclipse is discussed in this book as well.

I am currently reading the <<Java Development with Ant Paperback by Erik Hatcher>> and what I found about this book is that it focused too much on the ANT Syntax..
and a lot of the tasks which cannot go through the Ant1.6.5 compiler..

Maybe I am too busy these days, really very slow in progress on this book.

Kind regards,
Jiafan
