:It should be noted, however, that Ant's depends attribute only specifies the order in which targets should be executed - it does not affect whether the target that specifies the dependency(s) gets executed if the dependent target(s) did not (need to) run.
::'''NOTE''': In Cygwin in the ''build'' folder. Just typing ''ant'', will build the default target of the project. But typing
'' ant assign1.test '' for example, will build dependents too.
