Subject RE: winning the case for ANT
Date Fri, 15 Oct 2004 15:55:14 GMT
I would also point out that Ant is not just a non-proprietary *Java*
build tool.  It is a non-proprietary built tool, period.  I'm using
Cruise Control and Ant to build Delphi and C++ binaries and to package
those binaries into an installer with NSIS.  In fact, I currently have
no Java in my project source anywhere.

What do they propose? What type of projects are you going to build? Even
though I am using ANT everywhere, other people successfully use
VisualStudio to build their projects. Maybe your coworkers' ideas have

Long time ago we tried to use Make to build our projects and soon we hit
a command line length restriction. ANT handles most of the complexity
while still allowing to run external commands.
