Hi Ranchers,
I am about to start my assignment and confused with whether to use ant or maven or IDE itself to build the project.
Will the exam assignment contains some guidelines regarding building of projects?

Hi Sanjeev,

I am using Eclipse to develop and test the application and Ant to build it (compile, javadoc, jar)

Sanjeev,
I am using NetBeans IDE to write the code, in Windows on my laptop. Seems pretty simple, but I also bought a book on the IDE from Apress. Pro NetBeans IDE 5.5

Hope that helps.

Hey Rome/Mark,
Thanks for the suggesions.Using IDE is fine,we cant even think of a development without using IDE.But again there are several possibilities like...

* Use of IDE itself,using IDE to build the project.
* Use of IDE with Ant,using Ant to build the project.
* Use of IDE with Maven,using Maven to build the project.

I am more inclined towards using Maven as a build tool rather than Ant.I think its on personal discretion,what one chooses,still interested to know what SCJD aspirants chooses.
