comment How to monitor & record build (compile/test) time?
@ChrisF - can you explain why this question has been closed? In my mind, it is a question about 'development methodologies and processes'. I had wondered whether to post it to StackOverflow, as a question about 'a practical, answerable problem that is unique to software development', but that migration was rejected. If the question is off-topic for both Programmers and StackOverflow, where does it belong?

@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen - can you expand on that? What do you mean when you suggest modifying the external maven installation?

comment How to monitor & record build (compile/test) time?
@definitely - Thanks - that's a helpful suggestion to monitor the build-time from day-to-day over time, and hopefully in a consistent environment. However, that doesn't take into account how often I am building the project (or sub-modules) in my daily development work. I'd really like to be able to (objectively) say I've spent x mins (or hours!) doing builds each day. (That would provide ammunition for arguing to spend time reducing the build time...)

comment Scripts to run Java programs - e.g. Ant
@kdgregory - should be platform independent (Windows & Unix - currently predominately Windows, but increasingly Unix). Re trade-offs - not sure, but I'll try to add some priorities on the needs above.

comment Scripts to run Java programs - e.g. Ant
@gnat - the question does specify a problem (how to easily execute a bunch of Java programs) and what has been done (we've used Ant, but this is the problem we've had...). I've rephrased the final question to ask about 'approaches' to solve this problem rather than specific 'tools' - but I suspect that any suggested 'approach' is going to recommend a 'tool'.

@downvoter - I don't mind criticism, but I prefer it be constructive. Could you elaborate on why you downvoted?
