Task: Build the project using ANT

Till now we have relied on our IDE to compile code. However, in most organizations, build systems use build scripts to generate a build.

This means that even though individual developers might continue to build using Eclipse's compiler (this does have a huge advantage due to it's on the fly error checking), the organization's nightly build system will most likely use build scripts written in ANT, or perhaps a full fledged build system like Maven. We will not talk about Maven in this course, but we will learn how to create simple build scripts in ANT.

First download ANT, and create a simple build script that will compile your project.

Describe what you did, any problems that you may have faced and how you overcame them, in a blog post.
