If you are not an Eclipse user, or do not want to use the Eclipse plugin to build, upload and run jar files on the EV3, you can use ant build files instead.
Example build.xml and build.properties files are in the org.lejos.ev3.example project.
This project is available in the samples distribution and is optionally installed by the Windows installer. It can be imported into Eclipse or manually imported into other IDEs.
The build.xml file references a local.properties file. You can create such a file to hold properties specific to your system, such as ev3.host if you are using Wifi.
Tailor the build.xml and build.properties files to your requirements.
