  Introducing Raven: An Elegant Build for Java
Subject:   Yes, but why?

Why would I want to introduce another language just to do build? With both Ant+Ivy and Maven, I only need the language I am working with to make everything run.

    Didn't you have to learn Ant and Maven? They're programmed in Java but you don't use them in Java. I don't see any difference between learning an XML grammar and learning Raven.

      Really? What do I have to install to run Ant or Maven vs what do I have to install to use Raven? If you don't see a difference I can't help you there.
