Mike,

Good question. In the area where I work, we are leading the push towards Java. I know that
our Internet group (where I previously worked) is using C and I think that they are using
make (iirc). I think that they may even be using make for the little bit of Java that they
have over there. I haven't gotten them converted to ant yet! :-)

Feel free to contact me offline and we can discuss it further and I could put you in touch
with one of our build managers.

Simon
