All,

I wanted to check if anyone can post their experience working with FinalBuilder or similar tools which actually generate the an or maven build script file for java based projects.
We are evaluating usage of FinalBuilder to replace having someone master Ant or Maven for developing and managing Ant build scripts.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,

I have no idea about Final Builder. But I do not understand why you would want someone to take the time to master Final Builder, when instead they could master either Ant or Maven and thus have generic skills that could be applied to other projects that use those tools. You might respond that Final Builder is easier to learn, which is fine until you run across something that Final Builder cannot do (or where it does something wrong), in which case you have to learn Ant or Maven anyway to work around or debug the issue.

Though looking at the Final Builder web site, it looks to me more like an alternative to Hudson/Jenkins rather than to Ant/Maven. In which case you still need to learn Ant or Maven.
