     1.4 +Apache Ant is a Java library and command-line tool whose mission is to drive 
     1.5 +processes described in build files as targets and extension points dependent 
     1.6 +upon each other. The main known usage of Ant is the build of Java 
     1.7 +applications. Ant supplies a number of built-in tasks allowing to compile, 
     1.8 +assemble, test and run Java applications. Ant can also be used effectively to 
     1.9 +build non Java applications, for instance C or C++ applications. More 
    1.10 +generally, Ant can be used to pilot any type of process which can be 
    1.11 +described in terms of targets and tasks.
    1.12 +
    1.13 +Ant is written in Java. Users of Ant can develop their own "antlibs" 
    1.14 +containing Ant tasks and types, and are offered a large number of ready-made 
    1.15 +commercial or open-source "antlibs".
    1.16 +
    1.17 +Ant is extremely flexible and does not impose coding conventions or directory 
    1.18 +layouts to the Java projects which adopt it as a build tool.
    1.19 +
    1.20 +Software development projects looking for a solution combining build tool and 
    1.21 +dependency management can use Ant in combination with Apache Ivy.
    1.22 +
    1.23 +The Apache Ant project is part of the Apache Software Foundation.
