Java Build Automation Tools Jungle

A session at Project Automation Experience 2010

It's amazing, but true - for a very long time "the enterprise language of the new century" didn't have a decent build automation tool. We had imperative-only Ant, then declarative-only Maven2, but both not without significant downsides. As usual, a gloomy present leads to a brighter future and today we witness great developments in the build automation tools industry.

During this session you'll get a comprehensive overview of today's tools, including what's good, what's bad and what's ugly in Ant and Maven2. Next we will define what we expect from the perfect build automation tool, and then dive into the sea of various tools, rating each one according to those expectations.
