As promised in my last weblog, I've released Antgraph 1.0. This is a little utility I wrote that generates a graphical dependency tree for any Ant buildfile. You can find the tool on my personal website at http://www.ericburke.com.


I use Graphviz to actually generate the graph. Antgraph consists of the following:


  • An XSLT stylesheet to convert dependencies in any Ant buildfile into Graphviz/DOT format

  • An Ant buildfile to drive the transformation process, so you don't have to launch the XSLT processor yourself.

  • A DOS batch file allowing you to drag and drop any Ant buildfile to perform the transformation.





I hope you find this useful. It's just a quick hack...it was fun to write. No license. Just free software. Enjoy!

Let me know if you find this useful!
