A subproject of Jakarta is ANT which is  a java based build tool.  Make is the standard build tool, but is very dependant
on OS and platform. ANT strives for platform independance.


"Ant is different. Instead a model where it is extended with shell based commands, it is extended using 
Java classes. Instead of writing shell commands, the configuration files are XML based calling out a 
target tree where various tasks get executed. Each task is run by an object which implements a 
particular Task interface. "
