Official Mirror:
7Bee is a Java-based build tool. 7Bee inherited some principles of Make. Why another build tool when there are make, gnumake, nmake, ant, maven, jam, and many others? Because all those tools have limitations that 7Bee's original author couldn't live with when developing software across multiple platforms using different products. Actually, the author had two objections before starting this project: 1. Usage of Make requires to install a set of GNU tools 2. Ant didn't meet to requirements of creation sophisticated build procedures, and had too big footprint Why 7, because 7 is a number of base classes giving 7Bee implementation.
