The Wannabe Java Rockstar: The History of Ant

The History of Ant

Conor gives a fascinating summary of the development of Ant. I found the bits about Ant2 particularly interesting. Devoted followers of ant-dev might already know that several efforts competed to become Ant2. All of them have died.

Instead, the developers decided to evolutionary improve Ant 1.x.

Good read.
