(1)	Is Maven the right tool to do this?

I think you have to replace your ANT files to get some MAVEN magic or 
set up a parallel MAVEN build in addition to your existing ANT build. 
If you do more in your builld.xml than just compiling you need some 
JELLY coding for maven.xml - JELLY is ANT compatible .... 

(2) Sample projects

Have a look at 
... there are more Maven enabled projects out there than you are 
willing to play around.
