IDE independence is necessary for open resource tasks (or different initiatives) within which many of the builders could use assorted IDEs. utilizing Ant, Java builders can: * outline construct chunks, the consequences that they have to produce, and the dependencies among them * immediately retrieve resource code from resource regulate structures comparable to PVCS * construct purposes via having Ant bring together the required resource documents within the right orderAnt construct documents are written utilizing XML-a well-established standard-so programmers utilizing Ant aren't required to benefit another scripting language. they are going to most probably already understand XML, and may be capable of leverage that wisdom.

Errors, however, occur within two distinct phases during the processing of an element, and understanding these phases alleviates some frustration.
