Automating ActionScript Projects with Eclipse and Ant

Let me start by saying I’m a lazy developer by design. I’d rather spend a day to code something once than code the same task over and over again. The same goes for processes: why do repetitive tasks if you can automate them? Imagine all the time you’ll save. We live in a world where time is scarce and where project managers are breathing down our necks to get that specific feature, that deployment, or that project done now. Just think of all the stress it will save you when you return to that project you did a year ago and you can just build with the push of a button. Less stress, and more control over your workflow.
