0. 0 making all your work obsolete. 0, so old build code and new build code can live side by side. Because Ant’s change is so public and frequent, it may seem less stable than existing products. However, every night, one person’s computer attempts to build the planet’s most popular open-source Java projects from their latest source, using the latest version of Ant as the foundation. When that build breaks because of a change in Ant, the owner of that computer, Sam Ruby, lets the Ant development team know.

Ant instantiates a Java object, sets some parameters, then tells it to perform its work. A simple task such as would call a Java library package to execute the function. A more complex task such as would invoke a third-party FTP library to talk to the remote server, and optionally perform dependency checking to only upload files that were newer than those at the destination. A very complex task such as not only uses dependency checking to decide which files to compile, it supports multiple compiler back ends, calling Sun’s Java compiler in the same VM, or executing IBM’s Jikes compiler as an external executable.

Viewed from traditional methodologies such as the waterfall methodology, this seems insane. How can change have such little effect? The idea is that change is embraced; it is planned for and expected. The software is continually refactored during development to keep it simple, clean, and agile at all times. Change occurs in small incremental steps when using XP, leaving the system ever in a production-ready state. Feedback is rapid, with end-users ideally on site during development to provide immediate answers.
