The tools are largely complementary.  Maven is a project management tool
that is especially good at automating Web site builds.  Ant is an integral
part of this.  You can compile and test your software using Ant and JUnit,
and in the same run generate a project Web site with Maven, with the Web
site including JUnit test results, Javadocs, etc.  See for example
