Subject AntServlet for lengthy processes
Date Fri, 04 Oct 2002 23:49:09 GMT
File based builds from production to development servers takes a pretty
long time, specially on slower connections from remote locations. 
I have developed a servlet that can be incorporated into Tomcat or any
other servlet container that starts an Ant process, passing all the url
parameters as ant command line parameters, the servlet executes an ant
script (provided in the url), the servlet can then read any output file
of the local ant process and pass it to the caller.

The servlet is being used for quite some time to provide builds in
production, the ant script in production uses the get task to retrieve
the data from the servlet on development, the local ant script log into
VSS, extract and zip the files, the servlet then read the zipped file
and send it to the get task on the production envirnoment,  which unzip
it using the "unzip" task and continue the build.

I hope I can contribute this servlet to the Ant community.
Please let me know what I should do?
Sam Gabriel
