[Classpathx-discuss] ANT build in infobus

ANT is awesome!  I have been learning a lot about ANT recently at work and 
I'm quite impressed with its simplicity and flexibility.  I have just 
implemented an ANT build process for infobus and have checked it in.  Here is 
some of the features of the infobus build now:
- compiles code into a separate build directory
- creates an infobus.jar
- generates javadoc into a docs directory
- uses junit testing to execute unit testing components and generates an xml 
report which is XSLT'd into html pages
- uses the checkstyle task to locate code style issues like missing the 
proper file header, code syntax issues, javadoc issues, etc

To set up ANT for all these features, add junit, a latest xalan.jar (for the 
XSL transforms in junit), and the checkstyle task.

The build files ( and build.xml) are quite generic and can be 
used in other projects as well.  For example, I copied them into activation 
and all I need to do is change the directives to build the jar to include 
support files; everything else is the same.

I would like to add ANT to activation and javamail as well.
