Lattice is a Java build system with strong multi-module support. Build files are written not in XML, but in the Python language. The benefits are much better readability and powerful imperative build scripting. For multi-module projects, Lattice uses topological sorting to decide the correct order to build each module. Because a custom task is just a regular Python function, they can perform any type of work, including invoking other Java build systems such as Ant, Maven, or Ivy.
CI-Eye is a powerful continuous integration build radiator requiring no installation and almost no set-up. CI-Eye talks to many different CI servers through their REST APIs (so no plug-ins are required). Currently, support is offered for Hudson, Jenkins, and TeamCity. CI-Eye runs as a standalone Web application.
The maven-buildmetadata-plugin is a Maven 2 plugin that helps you easily add build metadata to generated archive artifacts. When a product is running on an application server, this tool can tell you which version of which artifact is currently running on that server, which artifact maps to which source code version in the SCM repository, what configuration set (including profiles and environment variables) has been used to generate the artifact, on which machine was the artifact built, and when was the artifact built. The provided metadata include SCM information, build time, operating system, Java runtime, Maven execution information, build user, build host name, and build version.
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.
