My presentation last night at J2EESig went pretty good. It was supposed to be a hands-on format working through building and deploying a JSP based application.
The night before, Wednesday, was the lecture, and it was supposed to cover both an intro to JSP and briefly touch on Ant. The presenter was unable to get through all his JSP material and we really needed the Ant material presented so I started my presentation with that.
It amazed me to find so many people last night that aren’t using Ant and have really no experience with Ant. I love Ant and was glad to spend a big chunk of my time last night covering Ant basics and then I spent some time talking about how I’m using it at work.
If you aren’t using Ant what the heck are you using to build your Java-based projects?
