Capsule vs Pants: What are the differences?

Capsule: Dead-Simple Packaging and Deployment for JVM Apps. Packages any JVM application, no matter how complex, as a single, plain executable JAR. A capsule may directly contain all of the application’s dependencies or simply declare some or all of them, to be downloaded when launched; Pants: Build system by Twitter, Foursquare, and Square. Pants is a build system for Java, Scala and Python. It works particularly well for a source code repository that contains many distinct projects.

Capsule and Pants can be categorized as "Java Build" tools.

Capsule and Pants are both open source tools. It seems that Pants with 1.16K GitHub stars and 333 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Capsule with 1.13K GitHub stars and 79 GitHub forks.

            Gradle
            Gradle is a build tool with a focus on build automation and support for multi-language development. If you are building, testing, publishing, and deploying software on any platform, Gradle offers a flexible model that can support the entire development lifecycle from compiling and packaging code to publishing web sites.
            Apache Maven
            Maven allows a project to build using its project object model (POM) and a set of plugins that are shared by all projects using Maven, providing a uniform build system. Once you familiarize yourself with how one Maven project builds you automatically know how all Maven projects build saving you immense amounts of time when trying to navigate many projects.
            CMake
            It is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files, and generate native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of the user's choice.
            Sonatype Nexus
            It is an open source repository that supports many artifact formats, including Docker, Java™ and npm. With the Nexus tool integration, pipelines in your toolchain can publish and retrieve versioned apps and their dependencies
            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.
