Anthill is a build management server that ensures a controlled build process and promotes the sharing of knowledge within an organization. AntHill performs a checkout from the source repository of the latest version of a project before every build and tags the repository with a unique build number after every build. AntHill also automatically updates a project intranet site with artifacts from the latest build. AntHill is an extension to the ApacheAnt project and is compatible with version 1.3 and 1.4 of Ant. AntHill is OpenSource and is released under a Mozilla-like license. http://www.urbancode.com/projects/anthill/default.jsp
