Projects / Antmod


Antmod is a build management, release management, and repository management tool. Its implementation is an Ant-based extensible engine for retrieving, versioning, building, and deploying code to and from Subversion or CVS. It standardizes build files for Java projects and provides build plugins for various tasks. It also standardizes tagging and branching for both CVS and Subversion, and its module and repository management can also be used for non-Java projects. It greatly speeds up Java software development, promotes reuse of Java software, and standardizes the build-test- release cycle.
