Hi, folks,

I just started to use Hudson as my continuous integration tool. I'm wondering what's the difference between continuum and Hudson. And what's the best continuous integration tool in the market. I know there is another one called DevZuz Maestro Project Server.

I'd say that the most *popular* probably still is Cruise Control. Don't really know enough about the others to give recommendations, though, sorry.

Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

Thanks Ilja.

I forgot to mention, I'm using maven as my build tool. Is Cruise Control for ANT?

Cruise Control can use ANT or Maven(1.x, 2.x)

Here's an article comparing Continuum, Cruise Control and LuntBuild - but it also gives some good general guidelines in choosing a CI system.
