Let me tell you something about new synergy between AutoUpdate and Ant.

NetBeans 6.8 is almost out of the door and it is the right time to think about improvements for NetBeans 6.9. One of the painful tasks everyone has to deal with is (headless) setup of NetBeans platform. The painful days are over! There is a new netbeans:AutoUpdateTask API for you.

With simple syntax and just with plain Ant one can prepare own, personal and tailored NetBeans platform.
