Catalyst Systems has announced release of its application build management
tool, Openmake 6.3. The primary goal of Openmake is to remove the requirement
for developers to perform any scripting at all--no makefiles, no XML scripting
for Ant, and no special Java classes are needed to perform builds within
the IDE or externally by a build master. The new version includes a plug-in
for the Eclipse IDE; the ability to dynamically generate Ant build scripts
at build time; and integration with Visual Studio .NET.
