Ant is used similar to 'make'. It compiles, bundles, copies, filters, etc. Without Ant there would be many manual steps involved in building a complete deployment for any relatively sophisticated Java-based application. Check out the official Ant website (see link to the right) for more details.

Ant is a Java based build tool. In theory it is kind of like
make without make's wrinkles.

This is a tool from Apache and u can get more from
http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/
