Ant is a built tool...

You may have done things like creating a jar...war..deploying the your classes...compiling your classes.. all manually...

go to command individually......

and you need to go through this process everytime...

But if you are using can create a xml file called build file..

where you can write your tasks..(like the one i mentioned above)

and execute these tasks...individually or any combinations of the tasks..

So at one can compile,jar,war,deploy an application in a server..

Hope you got it...

Regarding Junit..its a testing framework....used for unit testing..


I agree. Here's the link:
