Building JMeter

Like other Jakarta projects, Jmeter uses ANT to compile and build the distribution. Jmeter has several tasks defined, which make it easier for developers. For those unfamiliar with ANT, it's a build tool similar to make on Unix. A list of the ANT tasks with a short description is provided below. Obviously, you must have Ant correctly installed first.

Here are some example commands.
