Hello,

Has anyone run across a GUI/SWING type tool that will prompt you for the locations of your source ect and build the ANT or MAVEN scripts automatically?

Thanks very much1

Maven isn't really scripted so much as defined.

I did an XSLT that created a prototype ant build.xml by running against an Exclipse .classpath file, but it wasn't GUI.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Hi Tim,

Would you still happen to have that XSLT utility handy by any chance?

Thanks!
