Ant build.xml examples?
« on: July 11, 2007, 21:14:33 »
Well, my project has finally reached the point where it's just getting too darn big to manually compile and package. I've heard that creating an Ant build.xml is the way to go, but I'm a little lost thus far. I was hoping to have a single build.xml file that'll spit out a Mac .app file, a jnlp webstart (with all the jars signed), a Linux directory structure, and a Windows directory structure (so I can quickly package the Linux and Windows versions). I've heard this is all possible, but I don't even know where to begin.

Could anyone who's done this (and I know you're out there) please post their build.xml file for me? Or send it to me if you'd rather it not be made public? I could sure use an example to learn from.

Here's the TreasureTomb build.xml. I don't really suppose it's all that much use to you unless you write your games in a very similar way to me, which is unlikely, but here goes anyway:

BTW I am an Ant n00b so this script is probably rubbish.

Not at all! I'm even more of a n00b, so it's a great help. I was able to get the Mac OS .app stuff setup yesterday on my own, and I couldn't believe how much nicer it was to just click on the ant script and have everything done automatically! I can't wait to use your example to try and get the rest setup.... one click to make all of my distributions! How exciting!  ;D

Thank you! Thank you!

I also wanted to ask... How's molebox working out for you? I've been considering it, but wasn't sure how well it worked for java apps.

Works well, as far as I know. Not sure how it copes with Vista or 98 though.
