    Okay, I posted a question a few days ago reguarding build files. I can not find the thread in the list. So I am sorry for posting about it again in a new thread.

    I am having trouble with finding information about what build.xml files are. I am trying to write a build file for a school project and the professor is out of town for awhile and I want to get this done before we go back to class.

    I am wondering where I can look to find out what is usually put into a build.xml file, the setup of the files, etc.

    Can anyone help?

    It took me 2 seconds to do a simple search of the topics you made, you could have done the same :p


    Like I told you in the other topic, go to http://www.xml.com to learn about XML.

    "build.xml" is just an XML file named "build". There can be anything in the world in that file, we don't know without more info. It's not a "this is what goes here and that's that" type of thing.

    I could name a file called build.xml and it only have a list of my favorite sports.

    build.xml is the build file for Ant. We can't really tell you what you need in your build file.
