Description

What is Apache Ant?

Ant is a Java-based build tool. In theory, it is kind of like Make, without Make's wrinkles and with the full portability of pure Java code.

What is Pants?

Pants is a build system for Java, Scala and Python. It works particularly well for a source code repository that contains many distinct projects.

What is Buck?

Buck is a build system for Android that encourages the creation of small, reusable modules consisting of code and resources. Because Android applications are predominantly written in Java, Buck also functions as a Java build system. Speed is the primary focus for Buck. At Facebook, we found Buck to be more than twice as fast as Ant, and we are continuing to make it even faster.
