The last days I have replaced the old, quite complex Ant build script by a much simpler configuration file written in Java, that is based on Xenoage Build, a quick & dirty extension to Ant. I did this, because I really had problems in Ant when having multiple subprojects with different dependencies on each other. I think, the lines 34 to 58 in the new config file describe this dependencies much nicer than the old Ant script.
Additionally, I have added a tiny tutorial how to set up Zong! in Eclipse. Following these three steps, you can run and debug Zong! within two minutes on any operating system.

have you considered maven? It works a champ here…
I just had a quick look on Maven, but was shocked. It feels absolutely complicated. Building Zong! is very straightforward and easy, and the included build script, based on Ant, should work very well. Did you have any problems with it?
