I am really not a java developer but am tasked with finding a "build tool" for my company. My company has been using jboss, eclipse, and myeclipse products. A new staff member mentioned Maven. In beginning my research I found Buckminster, Ant, Buildr. In reading about Maven, I noted proxy info (logonID and password) is stored in plain text. Are there any products where passwords are not stored in plain text? Does JBOSS or any associated products offer automated build and automated deploy?
