Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book’s structure and short length make it easy for the reader to first download the software, and then follow the trail to easier build management. The book describes the origin of Raven and other scripting capabilities. … In conclusion, Raven is shown to be an effective approach to improving Java builds management issues. This book will help users easily decide for themselves how these capabilities fit into their environment." (Scott Moody, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (11), November, 2008)
