While Ant support is technically available within Eclipse, I found that the very poor debugging experience particularly in regard to the 'taskpath' meant that just about any other approach was better. Personally I use MWE2 for all such 'scripting' since I can write MWE2 tasks and debug them pretty much just like direct Java.
This realisation discourages me and I suspect others from supporting, let alone improving, Ant access. I don't think I've actually removed any Ant tasks, but I always sigh whenever a releng breakage occurs and wonder whether it really is worth the non-trivial maintenance time in consideration to the close to zero usage. QVTo and EMF have Ant support that must be considered at risk. I strongly recommend that you reconsider your use of Ant.
