Chapter 19. Building a Product
As introduced in Section 2.4, Building a Product, on page 81, building a commercial product involves packaging up only those elements to be delivered to the customer in a form that the customer can install into his or her environment. Although you can build your product manually, it is better to spend some time constructing an automated build process that is more rigorous and will save time in the long run. This chapter discusses just such an automated build process for the Favorites product and enhances the build script introduced in Section 2.4.2, Building with Apache Ant, on page 83.
