Is there anywhere a GUI type front end for Ant?

There must be something easier than having to type all the strange syntax in!

Have a look at:
http://ant.apache.org/projects.html
And specifically:
http://antelope.sourceforge.net/
Hope this helps

I think somebody must have asked this already. As I said before, NetBeans is primarily an IDE, but it has GUI tools for creating and viewing Ant scripts.

The newer versions of Eclipse also have a real nice gui front end for running ant build files.
