Yes, I set the build function to use Ant, and told <f9> <f9> to do
like C-c C-v C-b.  That's what you mean?

Very nifty.  Use it often.

However: I'm doing servlet developing, so I have an Ant target for
running Tomcat.  It never stops, so that I can look at the output.
So in the morning, I open a shell window (eshell currently), then
invoke "ant -emacs tomcat" from there, and from then on I can see all
debugging output in an Emacs window, for easy searching etc.

I do use <f9> <f9> routinely for compiling my *.java files and for
removing and restarting the servlet (using the Ant tasks provided for

Hm.  Now that I think of it, if there is an easy way to tell C-c C-v
C-b to run a different target, then I could use it to run the
"tomcat" target, then rename the resulting compilation buffer.  This
would give me the same thing, but in two compilation buffers.

Hm.  Hmmm...  Why not?  Let me try (tomorrow).
