Subject RE: Running ant on a nightly basis?

Unfortunately for you, that won't work.  The problem is that your log file 
hasn't finished being written to when you are trying to mail it.

What you might try doing is have a separate little build that runs after 
all regularly scheduled builds and mails any new log files.  This is 
something that would usually go in a script, but there is nothing 
preventing you from using ant.

I look forward to hearing folks answers on this as well.  We were also
hoping ot set up a nightly Ant build, but I wanted to be able to email a
'build report' as well.  I noticed that an email taskdef was recently
added...can this email task be used to mail Ant's output?
