Maybe some people are thinking of full-blown installation tools like
InstallAnyWhere and InstallShield, both of which nowodays use XML project
files and can use Java for custom tasks. Using Ant instead for this would be

ant has all sorts of integration for deployment

- simple file transfer protocol support: ftp, ssh ( in latest and 3rd party
tasks ), etc...means that when you are done building you can move it to its
final resting place
- java deployment: all sorts of assistance here, as you would expect
- RANT: a variant of ant called Remote ANT which lets you perform builds on
remote machines
- integration with all major SCM means that if for example CVS is part of
your deployment workflow then you have no worries

hmmm, as for most valuable java deployment technology, not quite sure
deployment has been well defined in an engineering sense to be such a
distinct activity.

If you go to you will see a 
"Ant wins Java Pro award" section on top which says 
ANT as "Most Valuable Java Deployment Technology". 
But I cann't see much of *deployment* features in it. 
I found it primarily *build* tool. 

Having said that I want to use ANT as *deployment* 
tool -as well-. Could someone give some pointers on that.
