Jessica Thornsby

Latest issue of JAXmag moves to the world of build tools!

is celebrating its third issue, by turning its attention to the
world of build tools! Regardless of where you fall on the Maven/Ant
divide, and whether you prefer defining build logic with XML, or
programming languages such as Groovy and Ruby, this issue has
something for everybody! We take a look at the latest Maven release
– 3.0 – whilst also examining how exactly Apache Maven arrived at
this release, with ‘Apache Maven 2: Effective Implementation’
co-author Brett Porter. If you’re more an Apache Ant fan, then Jim
Fuller has some recipes from his ‘ Apache Ant Recipes for Web
Developers’ book, guaranteed to get you coding! There’s also an
introduction to the Groovy powered toolkit Gradle, courtesy of
Etienne Studer from Swiss based Canoo Engineering, and an overview
of Pulse and Gant, for those who want to try something new.
