Termite is a collection of build utilites which can be e.g. used together with Ant. In contradiction to Ant frameworks like CruiseControl or AntHill no servlet engine is needed to start or automate a build. It's more like a light weight collection of some basic tasks which are needed in many builds.
The following tasks can be done with Termite:
A simple listener that waits that waits for a build to finish and sends an email of the results (see also Ant FAQ)
