Generating Ant Build File

IntelliJ IDEA provides the possibility to automatically generate Ant build files for a project, or several build files per each module comprising the project. Once the build file is generated, you can add it to the Ant Build tool window. You can edit and manage such build file as a regular file.

To generate Ant build file

  1. On the main menu, choose Build | Generate Ant Build.
  2. In the Generate Ant Build dialog, specify the generation options.
    • Choose to generate a single-file or multiple-file build.
    • Choose to preserve or overwrite the previously generated files.

    Refer to the topic Generate Ant Build Dialog for detailed description of controls.

  3. Click OK.
