Smooth Build is a build tool which provides a functional language which lets you describe a build process in a simple and readable way. A build script for a simple Java program can be as simple as "app.jar: files("src") | javac | jar;" All built artifacts are cached and indexed (hashed) using the sha1 of the expression (function name and its arguments) which returned a given artifact. This way, Smooth never builds the same artifact twice.
SBuild is a Scala-based build system. It features platform independence, multi project support, automatic detection of needed actions, automatic up-to-date detection, a flexible scheme handler mechanism, Maven repository support, Ant task integration, automatic cross-project resolving of dependencies, high speed, a simple "syntax" that requires almost no Scala knowledge, behind-the-sceens compilation of build script to bytecode for fast execution time, and built-in scheme handlers for HTTP and Maven.
JCPP is a complete, compliant, standalone, pure Java implementation of the C preprocessor. It is intended to be of use to people writing C-style compilers in Java using tools like sablecc, antlr, JLex, CUP, and so forth. It has been used to successfully preprocess much of the source code of the GNU C library.
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.
