Ant4Eclipse at OSGi Users Forum Germany

On April 15th we will demonstrate Ant4Eclipse OSGi support at the "OSGi Build Workshop", organized by the OSGi Users' Forum Germany in Darmstadt. There's a full day with a lot of build tools that will be presented, allowing you to get a good overview of several common build tools at only one day! As all build tools will be demonstrated with the same sample application, it's easy to compare their different approaches, pros and cons etc. You can find more informations here:
