Provides a graphical presentation of the dependencies between targets in Ant build.xml files. This is useful in several situations:
* to aid understanding
* to highlight excessive complexity
* to provide images for use in documentation

Documentation is provided via the built-in Eclipse help facility.

Unfortunately this plugin only analyzes one currently open build.xml, and doesn't look into other referenced/imported files.

When I try it, it just tells me that it can't find my build.xml file - and it's looking in a directory off the root - NOT under the project directory.

I find the Ant Visualization tool you provide indispensable in the understanding and management of complex Ant build processes. Please consider integrating this tool with the PHP Explorer as well.

Hi, Please include support for import tags. If current existing ant-build file opened in Ant-Editor can be loaded for a visual representation, then so does the static import of other ant-build files should be supported for the graphical representation. Also, does the Ant-Visualization view have to be tightly coupled with the Ant-Editor?
