Well, since javablogs.com was broken, and I'm not sure how to get them to push my entry through, and I actually want people to read this entry (looking to get others thinking about it if at all possible), here's another post just to link to my Can Has Build system description.
Summary, the idea is to beat out Maven for easy conventions and to beat Ant for reliability and low dependencies. As in, win each of those categories big time.
I could have missed it, but I haven't heard of any other Java build systems that work like this one.
So like, here's the link again. Please read and comment (and make it for me?) if you have the time. Thanks much.
