Java Power Tools polls: preliminary results

Posted by johnsmart on February 21, 2007 at 1:25 PM PST

Earlier this week I posted a few polls on the Java Power Tools book website, about the tools people preferred in a number of areas: build tools, continuous integration, and issue tracking.

So far, the pools are getting some interesting initial results. On the build tools front, Ant is in front of Maven 2, but not by that much. Cruise Control still seems to be the leader in the Continuous Integration tools domain, well in front of Continuum and LuntBuild. And Bugzilla is the big winner in the Issue Tracking sphere, well in front of Trac and JIRA. Non-specified commercial solutions are also well represented in the issue tracking section.

Of course, so far, the number of participants is still low in statistical terms, so the results should be taken with a large grain of salt. If you want to share your own experiences, please pop in and vote for your preferred tools!
