Build tools are programs that automate the creation of executable applications from source

code. Building incorporates compiling, linking and packaging the code into a usable or

executable form.

In small projects, developers will often manually invoke the build process. This is not

practical for larger projects.

Where it is very hard to keep track of what needs to be built, in what sequence and what

dependencies there are in the building process. Using an automation tool like Maven,

Gradle or ANT allows the build process to be more consistent.
