I am using CDT on Eclipse. Though CDT doesn't have
direct support for cpptask, you can run your ant build
files from CDT projects, by including the cpptask jar
file to Ant's classpath using the
Window->Preferences->Ant->Runtime. You may also need
to setup your lib and include paths using the
preferences. I am using this CDT+cpptask combination
for Solaris, Linux and Windows cross platform builds
and works great.
