Oxygen XML Editor performs the validation of Ant build files with the help of a built-in processor, which is largely based on the Apache Ant libraries. The path to these libraries can be configured in the Ant preferences page. The validation processor accesses the parameters set in the associated Ant transformation scenario and uses them as Ant properties when validating the current build script.

Oxygen XML Editor automatically validates Ant build files as you type. You can also validate the currently edited file by selecting the Validate action from the Validation toolbar drop-down menu or the Document > Validate menu.

Tip: To make a custom task available in the Ant validation engine, add a JAR file that contains the task implementation to the library directory of the built-in Ant distribution that comes bundled with Oxygen XML Editor (for example, [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/tools/ant/lib folder).
