Bill, Is UltraEdit free? Where were the instructions to integrate Ant with it? I'm really a beginner so I'm going to not be shy and ask a very basic question. Sun has us build the tutorial examples with Ant. What is happening when we do that? I like to know why I am doing something and not just blindly follow instructions. Thanks, Betty

UltraEdit is not free - but you can download a free evaluation copy. www.ultraedit.com I used the "Tool configuration" menu to set up execution of Ant as a menu item with capture of the output to a UltraEdit text window. You should download the full Ant package from http://jakarta.apache.org so you can get the complete documentation. Essentially, Ant processes a build.xml file that defines various jobs to execute. Compilation being one of the basic jobs. There are a lot of useful built in jobs and you can define more. Bill
