Subject Any interest in a remote Ant server?
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2004 20:29:50 GMT
Hi all,

I've written an add-on for Ant that allows for remote builds. It consists of
an RMI based server application and a handful of custom Ant tasks on the
client side. My motivation for this was to allow C/C++ code to be built on
remote machines for multiple architectures from the comfort of the
developer's Eclipse IDE on Windows. I tried Rant, but found it too limiting,
so I've done my own version, complete with file transfers and synchronous
logging (which took some work to make it all serialize/deserialize properly
across RMI!)

Now that I've got it working, the question is, what do I do with it? Is
there even any interest out there for such a thing? Who should I talk to at
apache? Should I just throw it up on my own web page?

Here's how it works from the user's perspective. Please let me know how to
proceed. By the way, I have a new set of Ant tasks for Eclipse that allow
you to use the .classpath file from inside *or* outside the IDE. I needed
this to allow our continuous integration server to use the same build
process as the developer's IDE. Any interest there?

Cheers,

Robert
