make, that java port of make and IDEs. IDEs are the alternative you will
probably have to deal with the most, "why use a command line tool, when my
IDE does everything"? You can address that by showing how most modern IDEs
(all but jbuilder) host ant, giving developers a choice of IDEs

Subject: Research question

I'm writing a proposal for using ant internally as part of our standard
build process and I am having difficulty finding information on the
alternatives to ant. I have tried many different searches on the mighty
Google, but with less than wonderful success. The few that I found seem to
mostly have withered and died and a few even suggest switching to ant! :-)

Can folks on this list point me at a few other tools that I can list in my
document. Specifically, I am looking for build tools that are designed for
Java systems (hence "make" doesn't make the cut).
