I don't really care to make the comparison. I like the way my build
files look in XML. I admit, my opinion is very tainted by my habit of
automating things with Ant. I do a lot of automation with Ant that has
nothing to do with compiling java source code. It works well for me, and
I like it. Your original post asked the question "What do you think
about the XML format used for writing Ant scripts?". I have given my
biased and tainted opinion. It is what it is.
