Creating an External Ant Tool

An external Ant tool enables you to build a project from a custom menu item or toolbar button without first opening the project in JDeveloper. To create an external Ant tool, perform the following steps:

1. From the main menu, choose Tools > External Tools.

2. In the External Tools dialog box, click New to open the Create External Tool Wizard.

3. On the Type page of the wizard, select Apache Ant in the Tool Type drop-down menu and click Next.

4. On the remaining pages of the wizard, describe the Ant target, configure the build parameters, and select UI items to represent the external Ant tool. Click Help on any page for more information.

5. On the last page of the wizard, click Finish to create the external Ant tool.
