Creating EGL Archive Files in an Ant Build

EGL Archive (EGLAR) files provide a way of sharing tested and verified EGL parts with other developers without requiring the parts to be recompiled each time they are imported into a new workspace. The best practice for creating EGLAR files is producing them in an automated build process from source code committed to a source control manager (SCM) repository. In case you missed it, you can start at the Introduction to EGL Archive Files.
The new wiki article, EGL Archive Files - Ant Build, leads you through running a simple exercise that produces EGL archive files using an Apache Ant build process. You can use the command files and Ant scripts from the exercise as an example of how to incorporate creation of EGL archive files in your own automated build process.
