EBuild is a software project build, dependency management, and reporting technology. The aim is to be able to tackle any build problem in a structured, declarative, and elegant way. It is written in Java, but can be used to build all manner of projects and is extensible via a plugin interface. It is best compared to something like Maven (and in some respects Ivy). It aims to overcome certain design flaws and the resultant unnecessary complexity. The EBuild build model is general, but plugins need to be written in a JVM compatible language. Existing plugins all deal with the Java ecosystem, so EBuild is most suitable for Java and mixed technology software projects.

Build systems fail to scale to large projects when rebuilding a small portion requires stat-ing every project file. Prebake is a build system that uses a long-lived service to hook into the file-system and watch for changes so it can avoid unnecessary I/O for incremental builds. It also solves common problems with Ant and Make: missing dependencies and build cruft from deleted source files. It does away with missing dependencies by doing away with explicit dependencies altogether. Build dependencies are inferred by intersecting globs; if one product takes *.c and produces *.o, and another takes *.o and produces *.lib, then the latter depends on the former. Prebake also gets the benefits of both a declarative build syntax (a la make) and the flexibility of hand coded shell scripts. It uses tightly sandboxed JavaScript and "mobile functions" to get the flexibility of a scripting language with the hard controls on side effects that allow for repeatable builds. In practice, the JS in build files looks declarative, like JSON, but the dynamism is there when you need it.

QuickBuild is a continuous integration and release management server, acting as the central place to produce, test, deploy, and release software builds. It is designed to guard the health of your project by preventing broken builds, and to improve your build delivery process by pushing builds through a customizable pipeline (for example, dev->QA->release) with related information connected such as resolved issues and relevant SCM changes.
