Kundo provides a structured, convention based approach for Java builds. Kundo has a pluggable, extensible architecture; it harnesses the power and flexibility of Groovy and Ant to provide a highly configurable Java build framework. Kundo achieves this flexibility with a plug-in architecture that attaches behaviors (provided by Kundo plug-ins) to build lifecycle phases. Kundo consists of a kernel and a set of foundation plug-ins. The kernel is responsible for the orchestration of the multiple collaborators within the build system.
Architecture Rules is a Java library that allows a programmer to assert code's architecture via unit tests or ant tasks. This test is able to assert that specific packages do not depend on others and is able to check for and report on cyclic dependencies among your project's packages and classes. This project wraps a industry accepted JDepend to simplify the process of maintaining a solid software architecture.
JChav is a way to see the change in performance of your Web application over time by running a benchmark test for each build you produce. It is an Ant task that, when used in conjunction with the JMeter ant task, produces historic views of the performance of your application. Charts are produced for individaul pages of the application along with summary data. If integrated with cruise-control or similar build tools, you will get an idea if the changes you are making to your Web application are improving or degrading performance.
AntUnit is a library of Ant tasks that was initially developed to write tests for Ant tasks without resorting to JUnit. It makes it easy to turn an existing build file that exhibits an error into an AntUnit test. Tests are written as targets in a build file using assertion tasks provided by AntUnit. The antunit task executes targets in a collection of build files and supports custom listeners in a manner similar to the junit task's formatters.
Apache .NET Ant Library is a library of Apache Ant tasks that support development for the .NET platform. It supports Microsoft's frameworks as well as Mono. The library contains tasks to run common .NET development tools like NUnit, NAnt, or MSBuild. In addition, it contains a task to create Windows MSI installer packages using the WiX toolkit. The "old" .NET development tasks of Ant's core have found a new home here as well, and further development of those tasks will happen inside of this Ant Library.
The DPML SDK is a management platform for Java-based component development, resource management, and deployment. It is composed of the Transit resource management layer, the Depot multi-project build system, the Metro component management runtime engine, and the Station application management console.
JAM (JavaGen Ant Modules) allows Java/J2EE developers to create robust, test-driven build environments with just a few lines of Ant script. Builds are simplified with a standard set of commands that you customize for your project. The Maven-to-Ant bridge manages classpaths, dependencies, versioning, and resource downloads automatically. JAM modules support JBoss, Tomcat 5, Resin, Oracle OC4J, JUnit, Cactus, XDoclet, CVS, Axis, Castor, JMX EJBs, and Hibernate.
