Hi Katerina,

The upcoming BioJava 3 does not use Ant, but Maven as a build tool. In
order to compile the code you will have to write "mvn" on the command
line, or even better, install an IDE of your choice and let it do the
work for you.

Having said that, at the present not all of the BioJava modules from
SVN will compile, so you will need to take a look at whatever
functionality you are mainly interested in...
