Using Ant In Eclipse To Automate Deployment Of Jar File

I'm using Eclipse to build a cross-platform desktop application (Mac & Windows). I am able to deploy a Jar, but I have to remember how to do it each time. I have to remember to first Refresh my project and I don't believe that my previous choices "stick" in Eclipse.

I read that the solution to this is to write an Ant script.

Can someone help me to get started on this?

Kaydell,
The ant website is the best place to start.

I'm going to move this thread to our Ant forum for you.
