For developers working with the code there are essentially three ways of building from source:

For the person making the release, the scripts used use the Ant build. Once the release process is moved to Maven, the "Using Ant"-alternative will be abandoned. There is still a lot of work left.

The nightly build uses the ant build. The continuous integration jobs (on the same host as the nightly build) uses Maven.

In the Cookbook this had the following subsections:
