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.
