WinANT is a Windows program, build with Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 using VB.NET. It serves as an interface to the Ant build utility, for the sole purpose of processing DITA documents.
WinANT allows a user to select build characteristics using normal Windows interface devices such as dropdown lists, radio buttons, tabs and browse buttons. When all the required settings are in place, the program creates the Ant build file, creates a ditaval file (if required), creates a batch file, and then executes the batch file to trigger the Ant build. When Ant has finished the processing, WinANT displays the generated output file. The settings can be saved (as a build file) and later recalled.
