If it is just a basic project then it should consist of really two
lib folder to hold 3rd party libraries
src folder where your java code is
I have created a basic ant script that will take this scenario and
compile your source code. Then you would want to either create another
target called "dist" or add the Ant jar task to the "build" target to create
a jar file of your compiled source code.
<project name="foo" basedir="." default="build">
<fileset dir="lib" includes="**/*.jar"/>
<javac srcdir="src" destdir="bin" debug="true"
You can then run that Ant build file from the command line, given that you
have the source and the dependent libraries needed to compile the code.
Hope that helps.
