It doesn't have to be a big one, but i still want it.

Underlying functions? Explain.

This is the build process for the work contributed to RIVER-300:

gradle build; gradle -q dist


mvn install

The modularization approach is not based on a 'build tool'. It's goals are to organize the
project into modules that produce a single artifact (as much as possible), use accepted and
standard conventions for organizing a project, and to use project build technology that takes
into account a project composed of multiple modules. Unfortunately Ant does not help out with
any of these requirements.
