Would the sell of a few snazzy Ant logo embroidered shirts help convince
management?!  :)

(p.s. Where are we with that?)

Subject: RE: Research question

This gets to my whole point. Almost every IDE offers some kind of project
capability and a way to compile that project, but (usually) only from within
the IDE itself.

I desire a stand-alone build system that is cross-platform (Win2K, Linux,
Solaris, AIX, Mac OS X at a minimum), easy to use (not all of our developers
will have time to learn anything complicated *cough*make*cough*), capable of
being run from a command-line or script.

Ant meets all these needs with style. My point was to try and find
alternatives that I could list so that my proposal to use Ant didn't look
like it was written by a founding member of the Ant fan club! :-)
