Ant: The Definitive Guide (2nd Edition) by Steve Holzner

By Steve Holzner

Quickly after its release, Ant succeeded in taking the Java international through hurricane, turning into the main well-known software for development functions in Java environments. Like preferred applied sciences, Ant fast went via a sequence of early revision cycles. With every one new edition, extra performance was once extra, and extra complexity used to be brought. Ant advanced from a simple-to-learn construct software right into a full-fledged checking out and deployment environment.

Ant: The Definitive Guide has been remodeled, revised and expanded upon to mirror this evolution. It files the hot ways in which Ant is being utilized, in addition to the array of not obligatory initiatives that Ant helps. actually, this new moment variation covers every thing approximately this striking construct administration software from downloading and fitting, to utilizing Ant to check code.

Here are only of some of the good points you'll locate designated during this entire, must-have guide:
• constructing conditional builds, and dealing with mistakes conditions
• immediately retrieving resource code from model keep an eye on systems
• utilizing Ant with XML files
• utilizing Ant with JavaServer Pages to construct net applications
• utilizing Ant with company JavaBeans to construct company applications

Far exceeding its predecessor by way of info and aspect, Ant: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition is a must have for Java builders unexpected with the newest developments in Ant expertise. With this ebook at your facet, you'll quickly be in control at the most suitable device for cross-platform development.

Author Steve Holzner is an award-winning writer who s been writing approximately Java issues because the language first seemed; his books have bought greater than 1.5 million copies around the globe.

Genetic Algorithms and Genetic Programming: Modern Concepts and Practical Applications

Genetic Algorithms and Genetic Programming: glossy suggestions and functional functions discusses algorithmic advancements within the context of genetic algorithms (GAs) and genetic programming (GP). It applies the algorithms to major combinatorial optimization difficulties and describes constitution identity utilizing HeuristicLab as a platform for set of rules development.

The e-book makes a speciality of either theoretical and empirical features. The theoretical sections discover the real and attribute houses of the fundamental GA in addition to major features of the chosen algorithmic extensions built through the authors. within the empirical components of the textual content, the authors practice fuel to 2 combinatorial optimization difficulties: the touring salesman and capacitated motor vehicle routing difficulties. to spotlight the homes of the algorithmic measures within the box of GP, they research GP-based nonlinear constitution id utilized to time sequence and class difficulties.

Written by means of center contributors of the HeuristicLab crew, this ebook offers a greater figuring out of the fundamental workflow of gasoline and GP, encouraging readers to set up new bionic, problem-independent theoretical strategies. via evaluating the result of general GA and GP implementation with a number of algorithmic extensions, it additionally indicates how one can considerably elevate conceivable answer quality.

Example text

Handling Data Using Types Ant supports a number of types, and the rest of this chapter is devoted to understanding them and how to work with them. These types work much like data types in programming languages, and as you’re going to see, types and properties are intertwined. The data structures you create using types can be assigned to properties, and the data you use to set up those data structures is often stored in properties. Now that you’ve got properties under your belt, it’s time to move on to types.

The fail task’s attributes Attribute Description Required message A message indicating why the build exited No if Fails if the property of the given name is true in the current project No unless Fails if a property of the given name is false in the current project No 36 | Chapter 2: Using Properties and Types This is the Title of the Book, eMatter Edition Property-Setting Tasks A few tasks allow you to indirectly set properties; that is, you specify a task (like available) and assign the result of that task’s processing to a property.

BUILD SUCCESSFUL Total time: 2 seconds On the other side of the coin, the -verbose option gives you a lot more information than normal, including whether Ant is skipping up-to-date output files, what OS or JDK you’re using, and a lot more. class is up to date. class is up to date. jar file. BUILD SUCCESSFUL Total time: 1 second This output shows that Ant is skipping up-to-date output targets. class is up to date. class is up to date. jar file.
