Ant is the de facto Java build system. Its popularity and flexibility have made it a standard. A snowballing number of integrations with other tools makes it ubiquitous. If you are doing Java development you will need Ant.
At Core Developers Network we use Ant extensively, and have written extensions to it for J2EE applications. We can help you design and implement an effective build strategy for your application based on Ant.
