The next step up is to work with the built-in Ant types. Handling Data Using Types Ant supports a number of types, and the rest of this chapter is devoted to understanding them and how to work with them. These types work much like data types in programming languages, and as you’re going to see, types and properties are intertwined. The data structures you create using types can be assigned to properties, and the data you use to set up those data structures is often stored in properties. Now that you’ve got properties under your belt, it’s time to move on to types.
