FinalBuilder is an integrated tool for carrying out
software builds for the Windows platform. Unlike tools such as make or Apache Ant, which require separate tools for authoring, executing and carrying out individual steps, FinalBuilder provides a GUIto author and execute build projects, as well as a command line program to execute build projects. Projects are stored in a zipped XML format. A project consists of "actions", of which there are around 650 types defined as of version 6.
FinalBuilder, made by
VSoft Technologies, is in competition with Visual Buildand MSBuild. It is written in Borland Delphi, C# (FinalBuilder hosts the Microsoft .NET CLR Common Language Runtime), VBScript, and JScript. The tool has a mild bias towards building Delphi projects, but is suitable for building projects in any language.
