This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more
Of all the build tools and languages we use across our projects, the one we keep coming back to is Rake. Rake is a beautiful, simple and powerful build language implemented as an internal Domain-Specific Language on Ruby. Ruby’s ability to run across several virtual-machine platforms means that Rake is equally available - while leaving open the option to utilize more language-specific tools for some tasks. Finding a similar combination of elegance and flexibility is difficult regardless of your platform, so we recommend trying Rake for Java and .Net projects.
