question on config files vs build files


Hello,

can someone explain the difference between a config file and a build file. I want to use a config file to set a bunch of class paths I am not sure if that will take the place of my build file and I am not clear how config file work how I am supposed to run them and stuff of that nature.

I have a format of how the config file should look but I have no idea what to do with it. I am currently using ant to build my project.



Can someone Pls help me

if you are using make file for building the project, then you could
set the variables from the make file itself.
hope this helps

That helps a whole lot.



so If I understand u correctly I could set all the neccessary classpaths from my build file and that way there is no need for me to have a config file.



could I have both and if I did how will that work? or is that just bad programming on my path?



Thanks
