Are there any GUI tools for editing or launching Ant build files?

Antidote is a subproject at Jakarta that does this. Here's the README:


You'll probably have to CVS to Jakarta to grab it. I'm not sure if there are binaries available anywhere. Also, NetBeans (http://www.netbeans.org) has a fairly slick UI for editing, and of course launching, build.xml files (except it really bugs me that it alphabetizes the XML attributes - I want 'name' to be the first attribute, not 'depends' on target elements!).

jEdit has AntFarm - a very nice front-end to Ant, not to mention its the coolest editor ever.
