Make project (with ant) before running/debugging

Hi,

When I run an application with Shift+F10, I get a window where I can
choose to check or uncheck the 'Make project before running/debugging'
option. When it is checked IDEA will compile the project.

This is very convenient but I need to make the project with an ant
target instead of the internal IDEA build function.

Is this possible? Or maybe there is a plugin for this?

Actually it would be great if all run/compile/javadoc functions in IDEA
could be redirected to an ant target. (I know that Netbeans supports this).

Thanks

Setup your ant integration.
Then right click on the target in the Ant tool window.
You have a menu to select to run a target before/after compilation

You can't completely redirect them, but you can redirect their keyboard
shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl-F9) to the corresponding ant target (in addition to
"Execute ant target before/after compilation - before run/debug").
That's what I do.

Yeah, but he wants to do the opposite: compile before running.

You can also select 'Execute on -> Before Run/Debug'.
