What is build.xml for in Eclipse?

    Hi,

    Could anybody help me understand the build.xml file inside Eclipse? I
    program my Java program using Eclipse. I never create or write a
    build.xml file. Does Eclipse automatically create it by default for each
    Eclipse project? For what purpose?

    On the other hand, if I write a build.xml, can I force the Eclipse to
    execute that one?

    Thank you very much.

    Google for "ANT", and find your answers.

    If only Twisted had done so, he would have saved himself (and everyone
    else) a lot of frustration.
