I’m kicking myself regarding this one: although I was working for six months sitting within a backwards bitch slap of Hugh Reid, I didn’t really have a proper look at the Ant build system he was setting up. Luckily, on my very last day in the office, Hugh showed me his write up about his ideas on Ant Build Components. All I can say is that I’m really impressed. It looks like an elegant technique to manage reusable Ant components. I really wish that I had investigated his scripts earlier.
