John Brunner

This chapter covers

  • Introducing Ant and Ivy
  • Running Ant JUnit tasks

We show you how to be more productive with JUnit by running tests as part of the build. We also show you how to set up your environment to build Java projects, manage JAR file dependencies, execute JUnit tests, and generate JUnit reports.
