Subject RE: Can I zip a folder on server A, and send it to Server B

Look at the scp task. It will take a fileset. But what you describe,
with the temp tar (or tar.gz, I would suggest), can be more efficient if
you have a lot of data to transfer. 

Also, a question like this is better suited for the user list. The dev
list really has to do with the development of Ant and Ant tasks.

Subject: Can I zip a folder on server A, and send it to Server B


This is all being done in Unix for tarring a directory of php files.

The process I'm trying to do is: 

given a folder you're either in or are sending as a command line
argument, 

1. tar it
2. use svn update to get the version number to append to the file name.
3. send it to a different server. 

I also have to execute some commands like sudo and possibly exec. 

Can I do this all in ant without having to create a temp tar file, then
ftp
it to another server, then go back and delete the temp tar file? 

Can I use move instead of copy across different servers, so I don't have
to
remove the temp file after? 

I'm new to ant, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Just trying to
get
an idea if this can be done as simply as possible.
