Nope, Ant is a complete shoe-in!  :)

James Duncan Davidson (the creator of Ant) spun off another tool called
Amber, but I don't believe its being actively developed - although if it is
I'd love to hear about it.

Subject: RE: Research question


We already use JBuilder and I have AntRunner working just fine. My issue is
not against the IDE's, they do seem to give most of our developers
productivity benefits, but I want to have a separate build tool for those
times when you can't use an IDE: integration builds, over night builds etc.
My 110% preference is for ant, but I'm trying to at least show that there
were other tools to pick from and that ant wasn't a complete shoo-in.
