We've used CruiseControl for quite some time. Are there any advantages to switching to something like Luntbuild or Anthill? Do they integrate nicely with Clover?
Just a few months ago I would have told you that AntHill provides benefits in two ways: a supporting company and a web administration front end. However, CruiseControl (with its Enterprise offering) is moving in this direction with its recent 2.7 release which provides some web administration capability and its ThoughtWorks backing. AntHill provides support for project dependencies, a more robust web administration capability, user groups, and more support for extending beyond the development lifecycle.

In the past we have had CruiseControl hooked up to CVS. We will soon be forced to switch to ClearCase. Any thoughts on Continous Integration using ClearCase snapshots vs dynamic streams? Do any of the CI tools handle ClearCase better?
Bamboo (a commercial CI server) has a plug-in that supports Clover and since Atlassian acquired Cenqua (the makers of Clover) I imagine that integration will become quite compelling. Also, Hudson, which is open source, has a Clover plug-in. [ August 28, 2007: Message edited by: Andrew Glover ]
