Apache Ant™ 1.9.16 Manual

This is the manual for version 1.9.16 of Apache Ant. If your version of Ant (as verified with ant -version) is older or newer than this version then this is not the correct manual set. Please use the documentation appropriate to your current version. Also, if you are using a version older than the most recent release, we recommend an upgrade to fix bugs as well as provide new functionality.


Ant's manual and API documentation is part of the binary distributions or available as a separate archive. Manuals for older releases are available for download as well.
