Executing Build File in Background

By default, during the build process Ant displays a modal dialog that shows the progress of the build. It is possible to execute the build in the background, and use this time to work on other things.

Enabling background execution of a build file

  1. Open the Build File Properties dialog box.
  2. Check the Make build in background option.
