Conceptual Problems with Ant and Maven
+Build script does not listen to a running target ++Listeners have only a limited amount of events http://ant.apache.org/manual/listeners.html +Ant extensions like macrodef try to solve DRY but there is a steep learning curve and very specific to Ant.
Maybe the CI server is doing too much?
Conventions and Dependency Management are strengths
Like Ant, Maven has one way communication.
