Improve Your Build Process with Ant
Web applications today are much more complex beasts than they were even just a few years ago. The largest sites may constitute thousands of files with complex directory structures, and migrating those between development, staging, and production environments can be difficult to say the least.

While I've seen a lot of changes over the years, keeping a large project in check never seems to get much easier, despite advances in CPU speed, RAM prices, broadband, and communication tools.
